Hey readers! I am writing this blog after a very long time! Sorry for that🥲. So, In this blog, I will make you understand how you can create a chatbot of your own. So, this will be a kind of roadmap.
This is a tool available by google. You can just search it on google “Dialogflow by google”. This tool is used to create a chatbot. If you don’t understand coding then also you will be able to create a simple chatbot. Though without coding you will not able to do some complicated stuff, like connecting your bot with a database or fetching data from an external API. Click here to go to the Dialogflow page.
2. Backend language
So, If you want to connect complex business logic with your chatbot, You need to have a basic understanding of how backend programming works. For example, NodeJs(Express Js). You can also use other languages like python(flask) etc. Click here if you want to learn NodeJs.
This is very important when we talk about chatbots. We all have asked google assistants that “what’s the weather now”. So, what happens in the backend is when we try to ask such questions, the answers that we see on the screen come from an API. And those API is created by the organization that has the data. So, we should have knowledge of how API works, if we are stepping into the chatbot world. Click here to learn about APIs.
In most cases what happened is either we are taking data from the user or we are showing data to the user. And from where does this data come from? yes, you are right from the database. So one should learn what is database, and how things work. What are SQL, and NoSQL?
If you want to have a simple chatbot and you don’t know how to code then you can just learn Dialogflow and get started with it. But if you want to connect some backend business logic then it is a must for you to know coding and stuff. Thanks for reading, All the best.
