Controlling Spotify with Slack and a Raspberry Pi

Oklahoma-based Aaron Krauss works at Staplegun where they have just moved floors to an open-plan office. They had a sound system installed but no easy way to control it as the hub was in their server room (which was nowhere near where they are located). Enter the Raspberry Pi. Using Node and a Spotify library, together with a premium Slack account (for access to the API), Aaron created a system which would monitor Slack and then control what was played through the sound system according to the commands users sent. Pretty nifty! You can read more about how it was done on Aaron’s blog.
