The Facebook Messenger platform has over 1 billion active users and is growing every day. The opportunity to use this platform to launch your project or grow your business is incredible -- there's never been a better time to learn how to build bots.

The course is designed to teach you the skills you need to build your own Facebook Messenger bots.

We'll start by setting up a simple, working bot in the first 20 minutes of the course. Then we'll build on it throughout the course as we explore all of the features that the Facebook Messenger bot platform offers.

Along the way, we'll look at how to:

  • Send different kinds of messages to users, including media, GIFs and buttons
  • Make the bot appear more personalized and human to the user
  • Design the user experience, including handling multi-step interactions
  • Integrate with APIs to look up information or plug into your own services

We'll talk about a number of best practices to keep in mind when designing and building your bots, and how to ensure your bots are a pleasure to interact with.

We'll also go through some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that I've received while helping others build their own Facebook Messenger bots.

No prior coding experience is necessary.

I walk you through everything step-by-step and even include downloadable, working python code samples as well as instructions for getting them hosted and running yourself in just a few minutes.

By the end of the course, you'll have the tools and understanding you need to build your own intelligent chat bot on Facebook's Messenger platform, to launch your project or grow your business.
