Description

The latest craze in software interfaces is messenger bots, and Facebook has the largest chat platform by a long shot.
In this course, I’ll show you how to build your own Facebook Messenger Chat Bot using node js. We’ll use git to push and deploy our local  JavaScript code  to heroku cloud. We will be creating  a package .json file and installing some dependencies that our chatbot app will need.

If you don’t already have one, you need to create a Facebook account and a facebook Page.The Facebook Page is the “identity” of your bot, including the name and image that appears when someone chats with it inside Facebook Messenger.
 In order to communicate with your bot, people will need to go through your Page.

This is a hands-on practical course and what you will learn includes:
