# The Idea

Now that my semester is over and I do not have a lot of lectures anymore, I decided to continue focusing on studying Python in addition to R. My first project however is not a Data Analysis one - it is a bot. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic my friends and I were more or less forced to start our Bachelor studies online. Most of them I have not even met in real life yet. So our main tool to communicate, study together and meet up is our own Discord server. On that server are almost 200 students that use it to meet up and connect. It is kind of like an virtual campus. While we were chatting and preparing for our exams, we discussed how cool it would be to have a bot that makes our virtual college life a bit easier. We discussed over a couple of functions it should have and already had some pretty cool ideas. Those ideas were now transformed into a working bot!

# Preparations

Here we just link our code to our specific bot we created in the Github Developer Portal via the Discord Token. I have to omit this token because it is kind of the key to the whole bot. After that we create the bot itself and assign in to the bot variable. Pay attention to the commands.Bot(command_prefix="uni$") call. Here we specified the prefix of UNIMUC. So by using uni$some_command we can tell our bot what to do specifically.

# INSERT THE SPECIFIC DISCORD TOKEN
DISCORD_TOKEN = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"

# CREATES A NEW BOT OBJECT WITH A SPECIFIED PREFIX

# Thoughts

This definetly was a lot of fun and a pretty cool project. I am really excited to further improve this bot during the upcoming semesters. Especially because the deployment is done now, it is almost all programming from now on. Stay tuned! :)
