A Telegram bot for CFP Land 🤖30 Oct 2019
A couple of months ago I made a Telegram bot for the amazing CFP Land platform 🤖 They list call for papers on conferences all over the world, send a weekly newsletter with new hot events, and also have a paid platform to organize your CFPs if you apply a lot! Pretty neat 🎉
Well, the bot is divided in two:
An actual bot, which you can talk to. Kinda talk. It responds to some commands, like displaying all the CFP’s categories available or sending a list of the latest call for papers. Click here and say hi!
A Telegram distribution channel, where I send a daily digest of their new CFPs. Just join here and wait for it!
As a quick note: the bot was running a couple of months ago but I totally over-engineer it over time. I got scared after adding lots of unnecessary infrastructure that I gave up :( BUT yesterday I decided to rip it off and give it a second chance.
Also, the project is open source 💃 You can check the code here. There are a lot of improvements, like docs to run locally and unit tests. Maybe one day :3
