Build an intelligent chat bot that runs on Slack, Facebook & more!

Would you like to bot a chat bot targeting slack, facebook , sms and more? With a few lines of node code you can!

In this presentation I'll show you how to easily build a bot. We'll start from scratch and build a bot that will pull data from an api as well as handle different inputs from a user. We'll also hook in machine learning and add intelligence to the bot (No prior machine learning experience needed!) using Azure Cognitive Services.

We'll also cover debugging a bot running on azure from your local machine!

This will be a code heavy presentation using the Microsoft BotBuilder SDK V4. We'll use ES2017 syntax including async/await. We'll also see how easy it is to host the bot on Azure, but I'll also cover scenarios for hosting on other platforms, such as Digital Ocean.
