I recently created a video course membership on my online course website. If you are interested in the Dialogflow Toolkit, you should read this article to understand the differences. One time payment vs recurring payment The membership access is recurring payment, where you pay a certain amount $X per year. The Dialogflow Toolkit, on the other hand, is a one time payment. Dialogflow vs other topics All future Dialogflow courses will automatically be included in the Dialogflow Toolkit. All future courses will automatically be added to the course membership. All future non-Dialogflow courses, however, will only be added into the course membership. Courses excluded from MBD Membership I have also created some apps, and ready-to-use code samples, within my courses. […]
Each month, I will be making an entire mini-course free. I will actually do this by enabling “Full Preview”. Note: Earlier it used to be each week. But it was, quite frankly, too much maintenance for me. Plus it didn’t attract much interest either. So I have made it once a month. So I will be making a mini-course free for a month, beginning on the 1st of each month. What does Full Preview mean? Let us suppose you are interested in the “Intro to NLU” mini-course. Normally, this is what the course description page looks like. Notice that there is exactly one video at the top which has the Preview button enabled. I made this course full preview for the […]
Update Sep 2019: I have removed this option. There wasn’t sufficient interest, and people were still preferring to pay the one-time full price. You can read more about it here. Note: the price of both the Toolkit and the membership is going up in a couple of days.
I got this comment from a reader about the price of the Dialogflow Toolkit: I guess my concern is that I’ve already signed up and paid for a few courses and would have to consider that as paying twice. While I’m tempted, I’m more of a hobbyist who wishes to support such outstanding efforts. I think I’d only bite if you had a “Supporter’s Sale” that was good enough to convince your more frugal fans. Then again, that may just be me. While having a discount sale on the Dialogflow Toolkit is obviously unfair to those who pay full price, I do provide a way to upgrade to the Dialogflow Toolkit. (And I have already done this for a few […]
Recently someone sent in this question: I’m tempted by your dialogflow tool kit, but the price is holding me back slightly. Will it stay at this price or go up in the future? I think this is a good time to explain exactly WHAT the Toolkit bundle is, as well as my goals/vision around it. Here are some things to consider: Are you going to be investing in Dialogflow for at least a little while? Do you already find my material useful? Do you wish you could hire a consultant who can give you suggestions at various different stages of your bot’s development? Would you be interested in learning about all the tooling you can create to improve your Dialogflow […]
