As a kid, I used to wonder if I could make an intelligent clone of myself: which would look like me, sound like me and do all the work which I never enjoy doing or find boring to do. As I grew up and entered the professional space, "scheduling meetings" was one of them. Although Outlook was helpful to show the available times for everyone, I wished to not even have to switch my laptop ON, for this. I know I am sounding too lazy, but I am what I am :D.
At nsquared Solutions, the place where I work on amazing tech, and produce and develop awesome outcomes, I got an opportunity to turn my wish to reality: working on automating the "scheduling meetings", into a fun and interactive application. I am glad to mention that I used the Microsoft Bot Framework along with my C# skills, as I wanted the Bot to be up and running as soon as possible. Though, the Microsoft Bot Framework also works with Node.js. It supports a variety of platforms and can be hooked up with channels like Skype, Teams, Facebook, and Slack, to mention a few. Coupled with LUIS (Language Understanding Intelligent Service), the Bot gets more power-packed as it binds the natural language and creates models which improve on usage.
