About

Does this describe you?

You consider yourself “technical, but not a programmer”

You would like to build chatbots using simple and well proven technology

You would like to maximize your understanding of how your bot works, and rely much less on your developer

You prefer paid no-code and low-code tools which allow you to build your bot rapidly over free tools which don’t

On this website, you will find lots of resources to help you build your Dialogflow chatbot without wasting your time.

My suggestions for non-programmers who are creating Dialogflow chatbots

Use a systematic approach to learn Dialogflow

Avoid the slot filling feature

Minimize context lifespan

Use Mindomo to design your Dialogflow flowchart

Use Airtable as the database if possible

Spend some time learning the basics of how webhooks work. This will help you understand all the 4 layers of a Dialogflow bot, and also make it much easier to communicate requirements to your programmer

Invest in tools which speed up your bot development. You will also be able to improve the quality of your bot in the process

Dialogflow has a REST API that you can use to maintain your bot. You can use the Python scripts I have created to help you with this and save a lot of time. For example, you can automate a significant chunk of your Dialogflow ES to Dialogflow CX migration by using the REST API.

It is very hard find a complete course about DialogFlow CX

Actually is very hard find a complete course about DialogFlow CX, so I did not find any obstacle to buy this course. I managed to implement a chatbot for a website by creating my own webhook in PHP.

What I liked the most about this course was the clear way in which how to create a webhook was explained.
1. You can possibility learn how to implement custom integration using anymore framework.
2. You can understand the difference between dialogflow ES and dialogflow CX.
3. You can observe and prevent some bugs that the application has.

I recommend this course because actually is very hard find a complete course about this technology and Aravind simplify the way to explain this topic.

Review for Learn Dialogflow CX

The course breaks things down into “bite-sized morsels” without using lingo that leaves many behind

There are precious few courses and tutorials for Dialogflow CX given its recent release. For that reason, I wondered if I should wait until the product matured some more before looking for a course. I bought the course after watching a few of the previews of this and other courses. I like Aravind’s approach to teaching. He breaks things down into “bite-sized morsels” without using lingo that leaves many behind. I like the discussion on state machines. I was distantly familiar with the term but Aravind brought it up close.

Other benefits of the course:an understanding of the terminology used in Dialogflow, an understanding of entities and parameters, an overall view of the process of building a bot in CX

I would recommend this course to anyone that has a need to learn the process of creating a bot, either for cost savings or for extending your existing call center functionality.

Review for Learn Dialogflow CX

It was one of the most up-to-date materials on Dialogflow

Watching the free videos on the differences between Dialogflow ES and CX was enough for me to make the decision and move forward with the purchase. The videos actually helped me decide which course to take. I found that Dialogflow is a very powerful tool, which should help me with my project quite a bit.

(I liked) The short classes and ease to navigate across classes.

(Other benefits of the course) Good content, good didactics and fast pace of learning.

I’d recommend this course, because it was one of the most up-to-date materials on Dialogflow. I started by purchasing a course from Udemy, but I was very frustrated that it never even mentioned the existence of Dialogflow CX and all of the materials were based on Dialogflow webpages and references that no longer exist.

Review for Learn Dialogflow CX

Just the difference between parameters in CX and the pitfalls of contexts and slot filling in ES was golden.

I have learned so much from this website and the CX course. I find these courses much more informative than the official documentation. Just the difference between parameters in CX and the pitfalls of contexts and slot filling in ES was golden.

Using Aravind’s flowcharting approach you’ll be amazed at how quickly a functional prototype can be put together

Take the time to learn the workflow/concepts he presents in his flowcharting tutorial. (This workflow is far superior to the approach suggested in the official DialogFlow documentation.) Using Aravind’s flowcharting approach you’ll be amazed at how quickly a functional prototype can be put together.

Review for Intro to Dialogflow ES

The flowchart also makes a great deliverable

I haven’t found any other Dialogflow courses that do as good a job of covering conversational design using flowcharts. I now create an Xmind flowchart before I begin any chatbot project, and use it to iterate requirements with the client as the project progresses. The flowchart also makes a great deliverable, especially since Dialogflow doesn’t have a visual flow builder, unlike Manychat or others.

Highly recommended.

Review for Intro to Dialogflow ES

Highly recommended for anyone wishing to go from noob to expert in DialogFlow

He has a habit of explaining both the hows and the whys of the process in a comprehensible manner which allows me to both quickly grasp and strategize bot creation far better than most other instructors. Highly recommended for anyone wishing to go from noob to expert in DialogFlow.

Big help in bringing a small team up to speed on a relatively complex topic

This was a big help in bringing a small team up to speed on a relatively complex topic. It gets straight to the point and was an appropriate use of time. (Yes, I would recommend this course) as it was a very good value in terms of pricing and covered the material thoroughly. I was referred to this material and would do the same for others.

What can I say – the lights came on

The video was just what I needed to understand how to take control with webhook responses regarding input and output contexts. I did not understand the concepts before carefully watching this tutorial and what can I say – the lights came on. Well described and now I can implement this feature.

Review for Programming Dialogflow ES

It was easy to follow and work through on my own

This course provides a great insight for non-programmers. Its easy to follow and allows a non-programmer to understand how Dialogflow can be used. It was easy to follow and work through on my own. I had a few outstanding questions, Answers were provided via consultation – all really easy to follow and clear.

As a non programmer who works with programmers this course is perfect

The course is targeting programmers, but as a non programmer who works with programmers this course 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.

Review for Dialogflow REST API v2, now part of Programming Dialogflow ES

In fact I am upgrading my current subscription to Dialogflow Toolkit

Content of this course is really good. Only obstacle I can think of is price. Conversation is one of the basic element if one want to create production quality bots. This course covers the conversation design in detail. Maintaining the state using context is explained really well. Most important takeaway from this course are challenges of slot filling and using session variables. Other benefits of this course: 1) Adavantages of using 1 lifespan of the context, 2) When not to use followup intents 3)Using session veriables to maintain parameter values.

Yes, (I recommend this course). In fact i am upgrading my current subscription to Dialogflow Toolkit. Its one of the best content to learn bot development.

I found a very deliberate method for making incredible conversational design-compliant bots

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.

If I can learn how to design chatbot (no programming background) after studying Avarind’s course, you definitely can!

I am not so sure whether this course is helpful for me to design my chatbot for my students to practice their foreign language oral skills. Since I checked some dialogflow courses from udemy and Coursera, my negative feedback from students. Therefore I am scared to enroll any of them from their website.

I think Aravind really did a great job to introduce dialogflow to people like me, without programming background. He organizes his course in very clear manner since I have been a college professor for 20 years. It is very easy for me to recognize how great Aravind’s course is! Very use-friend and very easy to follow. He doesn’t have any strong accent when he gives the lectures. It is so easy for me to understand. Really appreciate it.

Features I liked about the course: As I mentioned above: 1) first organized 2) easy to follow; 3) good examples to do hands on practice; 4) clear explain.

Other benefits of this course: 1) I understand how to design intent, entitles; 2) I even created my own chatbot after watch Aravind’s videos; 3) I finally know how to use the function of context after completing this course.

Yes, I will strongly recommend this course because even I can learn how to design chatbot (no programming background) after studying Avarind’s course, you definitely can!

It is far and away better than anything else I have used for dialogflow training

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.

Review for Core Dialogflow course bundle (now Learn Dialogflow ES)

I cannot believe how much time this upload tool saves me.

I got a huge reduction in time, Botflo allows me to send a CSV to our clients and import all these intents and responses in one go. (I liked) the simplicity, I pick a csv, upload this, then all intents are automatically created. I cannot believe how much time this upload tool saves me.

Entering content in Dialogflow was repetitive and time-consuming at best. Lather, rinse, repeat…and repeat….and repeat

As a non-technical user, entering content in Dialogflow was repetitive and time-consuming at best. Lather, rinse, repeat…and repeat….and repeat. Aravind’s CSV importer is a game changer. With it, you can build and store your core content in a spreadsheet or table where it is easily updated and reviewed in a commonly viewed interface. Then, when you’re ready, you can batch update or import the entire thing – saving you tons of time! Worth every penny! Highly recommended!

The magic key I needed as a non-programmer

The custom payload generator was the magic key I needed (as a non-programmer) to build a good demo with rich responses in DialogFlow Messenger. I’ve only used it for 30 minutes and am thrilled. I’ve spent hours trying to figure out some of the intricacies of DialogFlow on my own. Over and over, I kept coming back to Aravind’s tutorials available on-line. I trust the other functionalities I learn to use in the app will save me additional time and heartburn
