About this course
This free course explains the basics of Dialogflow for non-programmers. Specifically, I use a simple, easy to follow chatbot to progressively introduce more challenging concepts. If you are willing to put in some reasonable effort, you will also have a working webhook at the end of the course.
This lesson explains what this course is about, who it is suited for, and what we will be building.
A discussion of intents and how they work.
What are entities? When do you need to use them? We discuss this topic in this lesson.
In this lesson, we discuss how contexts work.
Fulfillment, also called webhooks, is the most challenging topic for people who don't have years of programming experience. A big reason for this is the complexity of setting up a real database, without which webhooks are not particularly useful. To help with this challenge, I use the restdb.io service, which provides one of the simplest ways to set up a real database online, to help you create your first webhook.
