Melbourne Azure Nights Follow up – Building Intelligent Bots with Microsoft Bot Framework and Cognitive Services

With over 65 people attending our July meetup, we doubled the number of attendees. Sounds like we are doing something right 🙂
Thanks for everybody that came along and stuck around for the networking afterward, even though the pizza was slightly delayed.

Also, thank you again to Lace Lofranco who delivered a great session on the Microsoft Bot Framework.

If you still can’t get enough of bots, here are more resources that you can use to educate yourself:

Microsoft Ignite Bot:
The Microsoft Ignite Australia conference held yearly on the Gold Coast, is Australia’s premier Microsoft technology conference and attracts more than 2500 technical attendees. With Bots and Conversational interfaces being a big thing at the conference this year, NV Interactive and Microsoft decided to work together to build a conference bot for the attendees.
You can find a quick explanation about this bot, as well as an Ignite presentation, the code and the actual bot here:  https://github.com/MSFTAuDX/SimpleBot .

Even more technical write ups of bots and other interesting projects can be found in the Microsoft Github:

Here is one is written by some Aussies:

Finally, the Microsoft cloudshow did a great intro to AI @ Microsoft.
This is a great resource with more deep dive episodes coming soon
