Be sure to check out my step by step guide to API.AI first.
|Zero to Bot
This book is a quickstart guide. If you have never created an API.AI chatbot before and you are just trying to dip your toes into the world of chatbots, this book can help. It helps you create a very simple curator chatbot which you can then embed into your WordPress site.
|Step by step guide to API.AI
This is a guide to understanding API.AI in a systematic way. It has a lot of overlap with the content which is already in my step by step guide on my website. I also have a bonus chapter in the book which helps troubleshoot the most common problems I see people get stuck on.
It is primarily aimed at Amazon buyers who don't know about my website. I will recommend that you buy the book only if you prefer the eBook format to browsing through a website.
|10 features all API.AI developers MUST know
API.AI beginner? Are you spending hours and hours and still don't feel like you know all the important features available in API.AI? This quick guide can drastically shorten your learning curve.
How do I know? Based on the many answers I have provided on the API.AI forum, I have seen that people who have missed learning some of the basic features wait for hours and sometimes even days for someone to come and point out some simple feature.
Suppose you learn about only one feature from this guide that you did not already know. You will probably save yourself a few hours of your time when compared to searching and figuring out the answer for yourself.
|Custom chatbots for WordPress
The default web integration available in API.AI has many limitations. For example, the hyperlinks which show up in the chatbot are not clickable. You cannot show media elements such as images, gifs and videos. This guide will help you overcome the limitations and create a completely customizable chatbot by using the REST API exposed by API.AI.
This product provides you with both the code and the training required to create custom chatbots which you can add to your WordPress website. For example, this chatbot can show clickable hyperlinks. Check out an example of such a chatbot here.
Recommended only for people who are already experienced with WordPress and PHP development.
