Synergy: a chat bot framework

Years ago, we had to rewrite our old IRC bot in a hurry, converting it to the Slack messaging API. When we did that, we also converted it to IO::Async and began trying to keep it both async and easy to work on.

This talk will give a brief overview of the bot architecture and how we've kept working on the bot simple, most especially by adopting Future::AsyncAwait. We'll also look at how you can run your own instance of the bot.
