Preview the agenda for session two, which includes FormFlow, Language Understanding Intelligent Service (LUIS), and bot publishing.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at what we're going to cover in part two in a quick recap of what we covered already in part one. So, in part one we went through installing the tools required to do development with the Microsoft Bot Framework, we walked through setting up a solution using the bot project template, we dug a little deeper into the concept of a connector and connecting the channels using the connector service and especially the new differences between activities and messages in version three and 3.1 of the framework. We also reviewed a number of ways that we can manage state in our bots and the concept of authentication, and demonstrated using an OAuth2 authentication flow against OneDrive with our Live ID and then talked about the concept of dialogs.
In this part we're going to dig deeper by focusing on forms and FormFlow and really how to created guided experiences in our bots and then touch on more advanced concepts like Louise, Microsoft's language understanding intelligence service that backs Cortana, as well as some the unique features of the bot framework like the idea of sending back attachments, and rich content via cards and actions. Then we're going to walk through what it's going to take to publish your bot and make sure your bot is registered at the dev.bot.framework.com site and then we're going to put it altogether as mentioned in part one in kind of a big universal bot that integrates authentication and gives us an opportunity to show the muscle of how all of these pieces work together, and then as always, we're going to follow up with some quick tips and tricks.
So, let's get started by talking about creating forms and dialogs with FormFlow.
- Recall the concept of a connector.
- Apply appropriate commands to create a dialog using FormFlow.
- Name the service that Cortana uses for language and semantic interpretations.
- Explain how a user can exchange messages with a bot.
- List three platforms where the services and features of Cortana are available.
