Booting Up
Steps for starting up your bot.
While you can use Docker or anything else to boot up your bot, there is a built-in command that utilizes foreman to ensure your web server and your background job processor both boot up. If you boot only the web server bot the the background job processor, your bot will receive message but will fail to reply.
