In this episode of Visual Studio Toolbox, Robert Green talks to Sam Basu about what it takes to build a bot.

A bot is software that interacts with humans to do things like chat, make recommendations, book travel and more. This is the first of a two part series where Sam Basu shows us how to build bots. What are the tools we use and how do they work? Once you understand that, you can think about how you can use them in ways that help your customers. 

Two years ago, I said that Data Science and AI will impact developers of all stripes. This episode of the Xamarin show bares out my prediction.

In this episode, Sam Basu from Progress delivers a full run down of conversational UI for bots leveraging Telerik UI for Xamarin. Sam walks us through what a bot is, how to create one, and how developers can be productive leveraging Telerik’s new controls for building out conversations.
