London Prayer Times Bot

Aims:

  • To build something which will hopefully help people find out the prayer times quickly, and consume less data than using an internet browser.
  • Allow the user to find a mosque in London, if they aren’t familiar with the area.
  • Ultimately, bring benefit to people by using technology they use everyday.

The bot was built using Python, Heroku and wit.ai.

Here are various the links to the bot:
