Introduction to the tutorial series is about writing bot applications using the Microsoft Bot Framework v4. The goal of this tutorial is to help someone who is interested in writing a Bot application that may not have much experience in software development. It will be a, “warts and all” journey to show how I would develop a bot. So I will be making mistakes and showing you how I go about resolving them. It will get you to a point where you can write your own conversational bot and provide you with some of the additional tools to help you resolve issues that you may find.
