The main point of this tutorial is to send data to Slack for some useful reason. Saying “hello” in your #general channel constantly is probably not that useful, but you can adjust the message being sent easily once you understand the communication here. Ideally this code should work for almost any ESP8266 breakout board so the next step is to connect something useful to the board and send that information to Slack or your other favorite service.
