September Azure User Group: Azure Bots with Node.js


Please join us for the September Minnesota Azure User Group meeting! This months topic will be presented by Kamran Ayub, a software engineer for Target corporation.

Title: Azure Bots with Node.js

Description: Does building a bot sound daunting and complicated? It's not! I'll show you how easy it is to build basic bots with Azure Functions and JavaScript and how we can hook them up to Cortana intelligence services to do fun things like natural language processing.

About Kamran: Kamran is a senior engineer at Target working on mostly JavaScript projects today but has lived in the .NET world for too long not to love it. On the side he runs side projects in Azure and ASP.NET. In his previous life, he has worked in enterprise projects that have deployed million-user applications to Azure and has worked on DevOps projects with a plethora of Microsoft technologies ranging from Windows Server to PowerShell DSC. Kamran is a Pluralsight author, speaker, and teacher who has given talks at local and regional conferences and user groups.
