Create your own IM bot with IMified

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 13 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

Over at IMified we’ve just taken the wraps off our newest product. You can now use our platform to create your own bots.

Using our tools, you don’t need to learn anything new to create a great IM bot. Use the same tools and programming languages you already know, and we’ll handle the rest. As I said over on the IMified blog...

We’re convinced that the ubiquity and ease of use of IM makes it important for everyone to IMify their web apps. So we’ve created a platform that makes it fast and simple to create and deploy IM integration that runs over multiple networks. A simple RESTful API allows you to add IM capabilities to your existing application using the programing tools, techniques, and server components you’re already using for your web site.

You don’t need to build a web server to create a great web app. You shouldn’t have to build an IM server to create a great IM app.

So come on over and kick the tires. We’re limiting access to the platform initially but if you request an invite we’ll let you know as soon as a slot opens up.
