Hubot vs Microsoft Teams: What are the differences?

Hubot: A customizable life embetterment robot. Hubot is a chat bot, modeled after GitHub's Campfire bot, hubot. He's pretty cool. He's extendable with old community scripts, or new community org and your own custom scripts, and can work on many different chat services; Microsoft Teams: Chat-based workspace in Office 365. See content and chat history anytime, including team chats with Skype that are visible to the whole team. Private group chats are available for smaller group conversations.

Hubot belongs to "ChatOps" category of the tech stack, while Microsoft Teams can be primarily classified under "Group Chat & Notifications".

Some of the features offered by Hubot are:

  • We ship Hubot with a small group of core scripts: things like posting images, translating languages, and integrating with Google Maps
  • Open source, written in CoffeeScript on Node.js
  • Extensible

On the other hand, Microsoft Teams provides the following key features:

  • All your content, tools, people, and conversations are available in the team workspace
  • Enjoy built-in access to SharePoint, OneNote, and Skype for Business
  • Work on documents right in the app

"Easy setup" is the top reason why over 13 developers like Hubot, while over 4 developers mention "Free" as the leading cause for choosing Microsoft Teams.

Hubot is an open source tool with 15K GitHub stars and 3.5K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Hubot's open source repository on GitHub.

Macy's, Heimdal Security, and Sainsburys are some of the popular companies that use Microsoft Teams, whereas Hubot is used by Keen, Oscar Health, and Kairos. Microsoft Teams has a broader approval, being mentioned in 45 company stacks & 31 developers stacks; compared to Hubot, which is listed in 53 company stacks and 20 developer stacks.

Decisions about Hubot and Microsoft Teams

As it is the communication tool chosen for the course, our team will be using Slack to monitor the course announcements from our instructor as well as to communicate with the instructor and industry partners. The tool for communicating within the team will be Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams enables the team to share documents and edit them synchronously(Google Drive is not an option due to one team member's location). Since it also provides a group chat feature, we chose to use it as our communication tool to avoid using too many softwares.

Communication We have chosen two tools for our team communication.

  • Slack

We choose Slack since all of us are familiar with this communication tool. We have a private channel for our team Sphinx for text messages. We added Github apps inside our private channel for repo update notifications. Furthermore, we could contact the subject matter experts within the workspace DCSIL directly for the issues we meet.

  • Microsoft Teams

We use Microsoft Teams for virtual meetings for its fast connection speed. In addition, the call feature in Slack is a paid feature, and we could have virtual meetings and share screens for free in Microsoft Teams.

we were using slack and at the same time we had a subscription with office 365. after a while we hit the slack free limitation quota. and it got annoying. the search ability was useless in free tier. and more annoying whenever you search, it opens a webpage and doesn't do it in the app.

on mobile there were many cases that I didn't get notification of important discussions. rooms was the way to separate a talk. but it become tedious. each time for a new subject that you wanted to discuss, you needed to add all the team members into a new room. and after a while the room goes silent. you will end up with a tons of not-in-use rooms that you don't want to clean up them for history purposes. also the slack UI for sub discussion is very stupid. if someone forget to check the checkbox to post the subdiscussion in the main discussion thread, other team members even won't notice such discussion is in progress.

we was paying for office 365 and thought why not give the teams a shot. we won't be in worth situation than we are. we moved to teams and we loved it instantly, we had a separate tab aggregated all the files upload. we could reply on other talk. no need of creating a new room. this way room belongs to a team and not a certain topic. our sub discussion was visible to the whole team. enjoyed integration with azure and unlimited history. the best part was integration with outlook. it was a full suit solution. our stats become busy on outlook meeting events. we get weekly analyse. we didn't need to host our wiki seperated. we've created wiki per team. the communication was much more fun.
