  • to
  • The PorterShed

    Innovation District, Galway (map)

  • Interested in learning how to create your very own state of the art ChatBot or learn how to use NLP effectively for your applications?

    How would you like to have access to the powerful technology behind Slack's NextGen ChatBot?

    Following on from the recent IBM Watson IoT Hackathon, IBM are teaming up with The PorterShed again to host a couple of sessions (Tue Dec 6th and Wed 14th respectively) on IBM Watson.

    The sessions will cover IBM Watson capabilities such as:

    • Conversation for creating your very own Bot.

    • NLP processing

    • Sentiment and Tone Analysis

    • Alchemy API's

    The sessions will be based on a working tutorial, knowledge sharing model. 

    • Some basic knowledge of APIs, REST and Cloud Technologies will be an advantage.

    • As a participant, it would be useful if you had a concept for a ChatBot or conversation flow prior to attending. 

    • For inspiration checkout

    The important stuff....

    • Pizza will be served from 6:00 pm on both nights

    • Each session will run for approx 90 mins

    • You will need a IBM Bluemix account.  Register at

    • Prior to the event we will provide promo codes to extend your account with extra services and resources.

    • Bring a WiFi enabled device/laptop to create your bots.

    The event is open to all curious minds willing to learn.

    Hope to see you there.

    Hi Folks, Due to other late landing commitments, I've had to postpone the Build a Bot sessions until Jan '17.

    Sorry for the late's unavoidable.

    I will send a reschedule notice once I have confirmed the dates with the PorterShed.

    On the bright side...., free pizza in January tastes better than free pizza in December.

    Have a great Christmas everyone and look forward to seeing you all in January.


    P.S Emil, The PorterShed is indeed behind the train station, will update the Map.

    Hi All,

    I would be grateful if someone could confirm the venue for this meetup - is it (as the description suggests) the PorterShed building itself (behind the railway station) or is it (as the linked map suggests) the Innovation House in the Ballybrit Business Park?
