Build A Chatbot

A premium step-by-step video course on developing, extending and testing
Chatbots with PHP.


Chatbots are no longer a "hype"!

"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.

More than 4 billion users are waiting

Messaging services have outgrown social media networks for multiple years. With the help of chatbots you can reach out to those users with your application.

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.

Take a look at my Laracon EU talk about BotMan:
