Botathon 1.0



Welcome to the first ever Botathon 1.0! 

Bots have become the latest paradigm for content distribution and e-commerce on messaging platforms. Some say that bots are the new apps. The purpose of this two day Botathon , a hackathon for building bots, is to educate, inspire collaboration and team building,  and to develop innovative use cases within a conversational interface. 

We are very grateful to have partnered with LA’s BEST to help us organize this event at theImpact Hub located in the Arts District of Downtown LA. 


What to expect:

  • Networking with like-minded individuals, passionate about conversational interfaces.  

  • Building a bot with a team

  • Workshop on Microsoft’s Bot Framework

  • Mentorship with Kik & Microsoft's Team

  • A keynote by Dr. Julie Albright on conversational interfaces and how this new paradigm will change content distribution, commerce, and social interactions on & offline.

  • Free swag, coffee, healthy snacks & lunch

We will also be awarding some awesome PRIZES to the teams with the best bots in different categories.

More information will be revealed closer to October 8th. 

Get excited because this is going to be a one of a kind event you won’t want to miss!

This wouldn't have been possible without the support from our Partner LA's Best and Sponsors + Community Partners: MicrosoftKik, SensayBrainitchCommerce.ioO'Reilly Media,SlackTwilioFritziArts District Brewery
