Brian from @betaworks here to share our latest and greatest project PlusPlus++! PlusPlus is a slack bot that lets you award or take points from users. The bot works by scanning for text matching “@username++” and “@username--” which would, respectively, award or take points from @username.

PlusPlus is new but its predecessor has a long history at betaworks (which I detail in this post), and it’s become a huge part of our company culture (e.g. bringing home-baked goods is a sure way to get a lot of points).

@gleuch and @lachhall from the PlusPlus team will be checking in throughout the day to chat about PlusPlus!

Been using this for a couple days now and love it. Great way for us to keep track of "props" for each person. Great job all!

Awesome stuff. @matthartman tweet (https://twitter.com/MattHartman/...) made me think that you can grow plusplus to not only Slack, but make it work globally. Use twitter streams and scan the web for @mention++ and keep a global score of interwebz props. maybe for v2 ;)

This is fun! Nice work @lachhall :) Got some strange maths going on though, if you add one to a user they have 1, minus 1 from that they have -1 and then add 1 to that they have 0.
