A video course
extending and testing
Chatbots and Voicebots with PHP.
Build A Chatbot is a video course that includes everything I know from building and maintainig the most popular open source PHP chatbot framework called BotMan.
It features real world examples such as a todo list chatbot to walk you through the concepts of chatbots through various messaging services.
"Wow, I didn't even know a chatbot could do this!".
That is the one sentence I hear most, when people get out of my conference talks about chatbot development.
With features such as buttons and menus, the chatbot has evolved into a full-blown mobile app replacement right in the most powerful marketing instrument: the messaging services.
This video course will show you how you can develop your own chatbot or voice skill.
"BotMan is a fantastic way to dive into the world of chatbots in an environment that is familiar to PHP developers. Marcel has done a great job building BotMan as well as explaining how to use it via these wonderful videos."Taylor Otwell, Creator of Laravel
