I built a chat bot to help customer service agents for a hackathon and a resource provider bot for the recent NASA Space Apps challenge and I found Firebase to be a great platform to leverage. In my talk, I'll start by highlighting popular bots in social media and chatting clients. I'll then go over the anatomy of bots for Slack and Twitter before leading into how Firebase Database and Firebase Functions can be leveraged to build a simple backend. I'll show off some code bits from Firebase Functions to demonstrate how easy it is to create an endpoint or read/update the database. That's the gist of it.
