Topic: Introduction to the Microsoft Bot Framework

Interested in the Microsoft Bot Framework and Microsoft Cognitive Services? Get a bit of both in this introductory session on how you can get started quickly creating a bot with some brains. This session is geared for bot beginners. You can create bots using C# (my language of choice) or node.js. I am shooting for fun and informative. We will create a bot, teach it a little something and have it learn to understand natural language with Microsoft's Language Understanding Intelligent Service (LUIS). We will NOT be creating the "Bot" apocalypse during this session, however, what you do when you go home though…
