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
