“Bots, they are invading our chat apps, now it’s time to learn to develop your own. Come learn how Microsoft’s Bot Framework enables you to leverage your existing JavaScript skills to create a single bot which can be easily deployed to many channels including Skype, Slack, Facebook Messenger, SMS or embedded into your own site. I’ll also show you how to take it a step further to include natural language processing to elevate your bot’s intelligence. Walk away with tools to build a great bot that can connect with users, wherever they are.”

NWCJS meetup – Angular 2 for beginners

Next week, PSC is hosting the 6th meeting of the Northwest Chicago JavaScript meetup group – seems very quickly that we have got to 6 months and we’re stall having fun and blowing some minds 🙂

This time around we are very honored to have David Giard, the regional Microsoft Technical Evangelist coming and talk to us. TypeScript is being used by the Angular development team at Google and it is amazing to see collaboration between the two companies who in other ways are always competing against each other.

Come and see what all the noise is about Angular 2 – Pizza and “refreshments” will be provided 🙂
