Build a chat bot using the Azure Bot Service
Would you like to build 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 natural language processing and add intelligence to the bot (No prior AI experience needed!)

This will be a code heavy presentation using the Microsoft BotBuilder SDK. We'll also see how easy it is to host the bot on Azure, discuss conversational UX and design and learn to build a bot that can receive input from multi sources such as facebook, slack and more!
