Managing the Conversation Flow within a Bot


If there's one challenge with conversational interfaces and bots, that has to be how effortless and smooth the interaction between
the user and the bot has to be.

The user shouldn't even feel like they're conversing with a program.

That's why thinking about how to handle the conversation flow when building bots is an essential task for developers.

In this talk, we will go through how to manage the conversation flow with Microsoft Bot Framework and dialogs.
