  • re:Invent re:Cap

    Fuse Coworking

    • What we'll do It has been a while since we have met, as I have been very busy running Panology. I hope to re-energize the #AWSUGLNK in 2018 with your help! Let's kick off 2018 with a re:Cap of the exciting announcements from re:Invent! We will do a quick review of the top releases & updates, how to access the recorded breakout sessions, then discuss the announcements that excite us the most! We will be looking for any big discussion items that would make for great future meetings. Use the comment section for this meeting to request specific topics or products you would like to discuss. I will reach out to AWS and see if we can get some resources to answer our questions. I will also be using this meeting to ask for some help in running the #AWSUGLNK. If we can get 5-6 co-organizers to spread the workload that would be awesome! • What to bring A list of 2017 re:Invent announcements you would like to discuss. • Important to know Help make #AWSUGLNK a success in 2018, volunteer to be a co-organizer!

  • Serverless Customer Service Bot Workshop

    SCC Continuing Education Center

    UPDATE: We are rescheduling this workshop for June. Building upon our last workshop, we will be building a customer service bot for Facebook that runs on AWS Lambda and API Gateway. You need not have attended the previous workshop. Overview Bots are eating the world! Wild Rydes (www.wildrydes.com), a new startup that is building the world’s leading mobile/VR/AR unicorn transportation system, has decided to use serverless chatbots to staff its customer service department. As it scales to millions of users, Wild Rydes needed a scalable way to meet the customer service needs of its customers instead of relying on human customer service agents. Wild Rydes needs your help to implement its vision. You’ll enable the bot to respond intelligently to customers by building in Natural Language Processing (NLP). The bot will use an event-driven architecture in which Lambda functions trigger workflows that pull customer responses from a Knowledge Base of Q&A. You’ll also write a function to trigger a manual approval request to a Slack channel, so that Wild Rydes’ technical staff can approve or reject messages from the bot to the customer. Finally, you’ll also learn to use Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon Elasticsearch Service to log all incoming requests and create live analytical dashboards, such as for sentiment analysis, to track customer satisfaction.
