At Thoughtpost, we don’t just build bots, we also like to share our experiences and help other developers build bots. The more successful bots out there, the better for everybody. That’s why we are presenting a lab at the Charlotte Azure Bootcamp 2019 on how to use the Microsoft Bot Framework.
Here’s a collection of resources we are going to be using that day (save the date, 4/27/2019) to help the development community here in Charlotte get rolling with Bots and Azure!
- Azure Portal – Where we will add our Bots and configure channels and settings
- Microsoft Bot Builder V4 Templates – These help you get started quickly with a Bot Framework project
- Bot Framework Emulator – This will let us test locally
- Azure Bot Service – Documentation on using the Bot Framework in Azure
- BotBuilder Community – Github Repo for the best Bot Framework Extensions
- Azure DevOps – Where we will get our Personal Access Token and set up some test projects
- Azure DevOps REST API – The best way to access your DevOps resources from .NET Core
- Azure DevOps Demo Generator – Populate a project with demo data in Azure DevOps
- QnA Maker – Tool for building bot responses based on a knowledge base
