Do you describe yourself as "technical, but not a programmer?"
Are you tired of reading Dialogflow tutorials which assume that you have some background in coding and do not explain why the code is the way that it is?
Are you spending 100s of hours trying to figure out the information for the gaps in the tutorials?
You will find lots of useful resources - tutorials, templates, training and tools - for learning Dialogflow quickly and systematically on this website.
In my free 5 day course, you will learn the following:
- Why Choose Dialogflow
- Dialogflow Mistakes you should avoid
- Understand intent mapping
- Design a flowchart for your bot
- Understand slot filling (and why you should avoid it)
The best database for non-programmers building Dialogflow bots
While non-programmers are comfortable using spreadsheets, databases are an entirely different matter.
However, you need to use databases to create any kind of non-trivial bot in Dialogflow.
What if I told you that there is a database which is easy for non-programmers to use? Not only that, but you can in fact have a working Dialogflow chatbot which uses a webhook to fetch data from this database? And you can build the whole thing inside an hour? (Note: I am not suggesting I will teach you how to code. I am just pointing out that it is possible to get this set up end to end without learning to write code)
Check out my tutorial which shows you how to do this.
Create a Dialogflow webhook without writing code
(or going anywhere near GitHub!)
This is a segment from my "Dialogflow Learning Hacks for Non-programmers" webinar where I show a demo of creating a simple, barebones webhook without writing any code.

As a Dialogflow consultant and trainer, I have helped many clients build Dialogflow chatbots across multiple business verticals. There are 200+ articles on the topic of Dialogflow in this site. Many of them were written as answers to questions sent in by readers like you. By Jan 2019, my Dialogflow focused YouTube channel had 100000+ views over all the videos combined. Many students have implemented successful bots using my training courses.
My concern was that Dialogflow was complicated - too complicated for me. (As a result of buying this course, I found) a very deliberate method for making incredible conversational design-compliant bots. I learned contexts - which has been CRITICAL to my success.

I am going thru your course bundle. It is far and away better than anything else I have used for dialogflow training. This assessment comes from someone who taught at the University of Illinois for 30 years and started a online masters degree.

The course is targeting programmers, but as a non programmer who works with programmers this course (Dialogflow REST API v2) is perfect... it provides an overview, well explained concepts and frameworks, and not too technical to follow. As with all other courses on MBD, I find it easy to follow and understand.

I have got huge value out of the strategy service, and will be buying it again as I run down my balance of hours. Aravind is the most knowledgeable Dialogflow resource I know, and has never failed to give great advice on how we can achieve our goals. Aravind is both knowledgeable about Dialogflow, and an accomplished programmer. This gives him an incredibly useful perspective and helps us to get to solutions quickly. [The service is] Very timely, very up to date on changes. Dialogflow is changing quickly so it is great to have someone who is this close to what’s going on. I already have recommended Mining Business Data and Aravind to a number of friends & colleagues.

This was the course that helped me fully understand contexts and everything I could do with them. I am now creating much more powerful bots for my clients because of this course. I only used a small fraction of Dialogflow until I took this course. Clients and other bot builders regularly ask “how did you do that?‘. Yes, I would recommend this course as an in-depth source to learn dialogflow.

At first, I was wondering whether the course would be in-depth enough. After watching Aravind’s free content on YouTube and reading his blogposts on miningbusinessdata.com, I was convinced that it would be worthwhile. Aravind shared several strategies that are not documented in the official Dialogflow documentation. These tips proved very helpful during development, and inspired me to discover and experiment with other undocumented methods to maximize the features of Dialogflow. Aravind’s views on contexts were especially helpful when starting out with Dialogflow.
I’d say this is the most complete course on Dialogflow I’ve come across. If you’re even remotely interested in chatbots or voice ui, his courses are absolutely worth the investment. Combined with the blogposts on miningbusinessdata.com, and the links to Firebase tutorials, you’re good to go! Chatbot use and Voice UI is growing rapidly and Aravind’s courses will keep you ahead of the crowd.
