Simon Michael - Senior Tech Evangelist at Microsoft UK - will be giving the obligatory BotFramework 101 (it is the first meetup after all), where you will learn more about ‘Conversation as a Platform’ – including Microsoft Bot Framework and adding intelligence to your bots/apps using cognitive services.

* Conversational Interface Case Study

David Low - SkyScanner - will take us through a case study of their growing use of conversational interfaces, and how they used BotFramework with some nodejs magic sprinkles to create a whole new way of booking your next holiday.

* User Expectations of Bots

Erdeniz Hassan - Senior UX Researcher at JustEat - asks if chat bots will soon reign supreme? Join him as he shares some of the findings from discussions with JustEat customers when developing the Facebook chat bot and the Help & Support chat bot. He'll attempt to shed some light on the challenges faced and the lessons learned.
