CoCo Devs 1st class

CoCo Developers

Sharing is caring – and sharing our knowledge with aspiring and professional conversation designers from all around the world is an amazing experience. 

Between September and November 2020, we conducted the first 5-meetings course on how you use our platform at CoCoHub to create your own chatbot. 

After the 7 first brave humans finished it with amazing products, the 2nd class got underway on January, with a second wave of people who are working on their chatbots in those very days.

We’re proud of helping people get into conversation design!

Don’t worry, we got your back. Here are the recording, the step-by-step turorial and everything you need to create an awesome conversational interface of your own.

Thinking about Conversational AI 24 hours a day? Voice Global Summit was a real test for your mettle.

This worldwide event, which happened on June 17-18, 2020, lasted 24 hours, with hundreds of keynotes, workshops, sessions and discussions about the power of voice AI technology, in front of about 10,000 viewers and participants.

On our part, our CEO Yaki Dunietz talked about standardizing the conversational AI industry using the unique concept of conversational components; we also demonstrated how simple it is to integrate a skill into an existing chatbot.

As the icing on the cake, we launched a new WordPress plugin that enables everybody to install a free, modular and customizable chatbot into their website.

NYC Chatbot Summit 2020

The Big Apple was supposed to be the perfect setting for The Chatbot Conference 2020. But COVID-19 changed that.

Luckily, the transition to an online event saw even a larger number of attendees.

In our wholistic “DialogFlow Integration” workshop, participants learned how to integrate pre-built conversational components into their DialogFlow bot and customize their responses to match and maintain their specific bot-personality.

Following deployment, participants’ bots were presented before the group for feedback and testing, fixed accordingly and further insightful discussions about conversation design best practices allowed us to get to know everyone even better than we could have imagined in an online event.

Thank you to the Chatbot’s Life team for hosting this great event despite all the operational challenges and an even bigger thanks to everyone who was with us. We hope to see you all in the next one.

24h Hackathon, Düsseldorf​

Taking part in our workshop at the Vodafone hackathon in Düsseldorf gives participants the advantage they need in order to develop a multi-turn, context-sensitive chatbot in only twenty four hours.
Using a CoCoHub component by calling an endpoint eliminates the need to write and maintain AI conversation boilerplates or low-level conversation logic.

This way, instead of starting from scratch, we offer developers a starter toolkit including a chat window, integration code with their choice of developer platform and a “ready to use” template bot connected to pre-built components from CoCoHub. May the best bot win!


The Cocohub Competition

Congratulations to the Druid team for building the best chatbot in our 6 hour competition! They not only had the best implementation of a component we saw, but they also succeeded in building and excellent component of their own!

Thank you to all the participants for joining the challenge!
