This 4-day Intro to Conversational Interface course will be held on Tuesday, January 9th, Thursday, January 11th, 16th (T), and 18th (Th). Each class will run from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

This is an introductory level class for people interested in exploring conversational interface design and construction. 

Through hands on activities students will learn the basics of designing and building conversational interfaces, such as chatbots and voice UIs. Students will have the opportunity to practice these skills during the class while making a simple chatbot. 

No coding skills are needed for this class, but if students have them they can dig deeper later.
