Developing RogSwaBot – Part 1

I first became interested in bots when I read about EstherBot, and have since read other articles such as PeterBot — the chatbot which replaced my CV and How to design a chatbot: creating a conversational interface

So,  I wonder about what bots could be used for and how I could develop a bot version of myself. My bot is called RogSwaBot (short for Roger Swannell’s Bot) 

So far, I’ve created Facebook and Twitter accounts for it and started to map out the conversations RogSwaBot could hold. 

I’ve also began playing with a few different bot services such as and (which quite rightly uses a bot for registering your account). 

I’ve got a lot of work to do in learning how to develop a bot, but it should make for an interesting hobby.
