"It's about time to take your medication!" or how to write a friendly reminder bot ;-)

The author shows how to use the SleekXMPP library in order to write a small chatbot that connects to Google Hangouts and reminds you or someone else to take medication for instance. The secure and recommended OAuth2 protocol is used to authorize the bot application in the Google Developers Console in order to access the Google+ Hangouts API. The author will elaborate then on how to use an event-driven library to write a bot that sends scheduled messages, waits for a proper reply and repeats the question if need be. Thereby, a primer on event-driven architectures will be given.
