Simon made a discord bot

Last Tuesday, May 19, was somewhat a historic day as Simon created his first Discord bot (actually, two bots: one that does polls and count-downs and another programmable one that sends messages). In order to make the bots work, Simon first made a new server called a “bot playground”.

A screenshot of our desktop terminal where Simon ran the code using Node. “I ask the bot to put Beep boop. Boop beep? when it’s ready, just so I know when it’s ready.”
Simon wrote the actual bot code in JS, giving each bot an .env file “where I store all my secret stuff” and “a package.json file to keep track of all the dependencies like libraries”.
