Leoncio, the Slack Bot

Mostly as a weekend experiment, I created a bot for our internal Slack group.

For now it doesn't do a lot. It stays there and makes internal jokes. On the future (AKA, when I get some time), I'll implement cool features. Getting trending headlines and sniffing Twitter is on the roadmap.

The name is a word play on 'león' (lion). This animal is the symbol of the newspaper.
