SUGCON Europe 2017 event bot now available in Skype
For our session at SUGCON Europe 2017 session on the Microsoft Bot Framework and for the conference itself, we build a SUGCON Europe 2017 event bot. In the previous blogpost, we showed you where you could find the Webchat integration with the SUGCON Europe 2017 bot. In this blogpost I’m going to show how you can access the bot through skype.
Like mentioned before: since this is an event bot, it’s main purpose is highlighting session info, agenda information, sponsor information etc….During SUGCON Europe 2017 attendees can access the bot through various channels, with their laptops, but also on their mobile devices through widely used apps like Skype and Facebook Messenger. In this blogpost the Skype channel will be highlighted.
To enable the SUGCON Europe 2017 bot into your Skype app, you can go to the following page https://join.skype.com/bot/120f1168-77bd-48f3-8baa-c78d81aba458
Just like you start chatting with the bot on the Webchat channel, you can just type hello or hi, and the bot will respond the user with options. Go check out the bot in Skype and play with it.
During our presentation at SUGCON Europe 2017, we’re going to demo the bot as well in Skype, and show how we build it. Besides that we’re also walk you through how you can connect Sitecore to the Bot Framework.
