Bots (or conversation agents) are rapidly becoming an integral part of one’s digital experience – they are as vital a way for users to interact with a service or application as is a web site or a mobile experience. Developers writing bots all face the same problems: bots require basic I/O; they must have language and dialog skills; and they must connect to users – preferably in any conversation experience and language the user chooses.  The Bot Framework provides tools to easily solve these problems and more for developers e.g., automatic translation to more than 30 languages, user and conversation state management, debugging tools, an embeddable web chat control and a way for users to discover, try, and add bots to the conversation experiences they love. There are Channels for Facebook Messenger, Email, Kik, Twilio, GroupMe, Skype, Slack, Web in order to have you connect to as many users as possible. In this hands-on workshop, which means bring your laptop, we will talk about some basic building blocks needed to create a bot and then start right into a hands-on lab where you can build your own bot.  Schedule:10:00 - 11:00 Bot Framework & development tools 11:00 - 12:00 Hands-on Lab12:00 - 1:00 Lunch1:00 - 3:00 Hands-on Lab3:00 - 3:30 Wrap-up | Q&A | Giveaways Speaker:Mostafa ElzoghbiSr. Technical Evangelist, Microsoft@MostafaElzoghbi
