Welcome to the first ever Botathon 1.0! 

Bots have become the latest paradigm for content distribution and e-commerce on messaging platforms. Some say that bots are the new apps. The purpose of this two day Botathon , a hackathon for building bots, is to educate, inspire collaboration and team building,  and to develop innovative use cases within a conversational interface. 

We are very grateful to have partnered with LA’s BEST to help us organize this event at the Impact Hub located in the Arts District of Downtown LA.
