Microsoft – Next Gen Bots

May 3, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Enterprises around the world are building conversation bots using Microsoft Bot Framework, and now we’re working on a new version that’s more of a revolution than an evolution. In Bot Framework v4, we removed just about all of the opinion and left room for the community to sprinkle in their own awesome sauce in the form of middleware modules. It takes a bit of getting used to if you worked with v3, but I think you’ll like it in the end.

Join me the week before our big Build conference to talk about how we’ll all be building bots of the future.

In this session, we’ll cover…

Speaker: Jeremy Foster Senior Software Engineer at Microsoft

Bio: I studied Computer Engineering and Mathematics in school a long time ago, and have thoroughly enjoyed my career course ever since – primarily teaching and software development and primarily on the web stack. I gained experience in education, aerospace manufacturing, and insurance, and eventually joined Microsoft with the goal of informing and inspiring software developers. I authored my first book CSS for Windows 8 App Development, published a couple of courses on Pluralsight.com, and try to keep up with audiences via my blog codefoster.com and my Twitter feed @codefoster. When I’m not working, I’m working on maker projects, spending time with my wife and two sons, hiking and camping, sailing, scuba diving, or working on house projects.
