Send AWS EC2 logs to Slack

I have a Java app that runs on an regular Linux (EC2) instance, and logs to some folder on that machine. What I want is for Slack to be notified if any error occurs in the logs. This is possible through CloudWatch in almost all regions. Let me show you how!

Send AWS CloudWatch Alarms to Slack

I have a few servers on AWS. Some information on those, e.g. high load, would be nice to be notified of. Preferably on Slack. How do I do that?
