Finally a starting point for your PHP chatbot

The Book Is Outdated and not available anymore.

After one year the chatbot landscaped changed to much that I had to take my book offline. Since my sales for this book did not went that well, I decided to take it offline.

"Benefit from my experience and let me teach you everything you need to know to build chatbots in PHP"

Hi, I am Christoph 👋

I'm a chatbot developer and speaker from Vienna. For the last two years, I’ve been working hard to deepen my knowledge in programming chatbots and helping others to do as well. I’ve been building several chatbots for small and big companies as well as for group chats with my friends and personal ones for myself. I’ve gathered a ton of experience with different messenger APIs while integrating bots in Facebook Messenger, Slack, Telegram or on websites with custom solutions.

I used my favourite programming language PHP for these projects. Yes, that's possible. No need to learn another language like NodeJS. PHP's got you covered!

When I started building chatbots in 2016 there wasn't a single tutorial available on how to do that with PHP. The only way of learning how to do so was by trial and error, but I made it through! Now, two years later, you will find some blog posts on the subject, but still not much. With this book, I want to change that and give everyone the perfect starting point for building chatbots with PHP.
