The OpsGenie Slack App is frequently a featured app in Slack’s App directory. The reason for this is our continuous focus on this popular integration. We want our users to have a seamless experience with it.
Hi, I’m Serhat from OpsGenie. I recently had the chance to go to Atlassian’s Connect Week event. I will try to share my experience at this amazing event.

Slack is great!
It is not just a messaging app; it is so much more with its apps. OpsGenie’s integration with Slack is so thorough that it has become a top app in the Slack app directory!
OpsGenie's Slack app has built-in slash commands, which is an efficient way to execute actions on a channel. For example, you have the option to create an OpsGenie alert in a channel by typing a command like /genie alert [alert message] for [user team]. Slash commands are very powerful and cover the majority of the use-cases. However, there may be more you want to do in your Slack channel.
Monitoring is an important part of DevOps. You need to monitor; your servers, containers, and now your serverless functions. Function as a Service (FaaS), also called “Serverless” architecture, is a relatively new concept. AWS Lambda is by far the most popular FaaS/Serverless solution in the market. It is an event driven, serverless computing service.
At OpsGenie, we do our best to be punctual and early adapters of new features released by the companies we integrate with. We want to stay flexible while providing a complete workflow and feature set.
Not so long ago, Slack introduced, “Interactive Buttons,” which OpsGenie had a great tested use case for! So, we started working on it. As an early adapter, our previous Slack Application (App) was already part of the directory; which led us to build a brand new Slack App.
If you haven’t noticed yet, Nintendo's new game, Pokémon GO, is literally taking over the world. Pokémon GO reinvents a classic game with an augmented reality twist.

According to a Forbes article by Jason Evangelho, Pokémon GO is about to surpass Twitter in daily active users on Android and is #1 on Google Play Store. Incredible success!
