The Bot Framework and the Microsoft Graph : Join the revolution
Level: 300
Track: Developer
Hey Cortana! Hello Google! We're getting used to talk with those weird characters that live in our phones or on our computers nowadays. When well done, those assistants can actually help us in being more productive, more relevant and getting information very quickly without having to search for it for hours. The bot revolution is real and it's time for you to jump in the bandwagon.

But how can we make it productive, or even just useful for us, Information Workers? How can a bot help us in our daily working lives? This session is all about how we can build and bring to life a bot that will get directly to the core of our corporate data and help us in getting information, making better decisions so we can focus on what's important. We will learn the basics of the Microsoft Bot Framework and how it integrates with Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies such as Facebook Messenger, Skype or even Microsoft Teams. Then we will have a conversation with our users and act as a concierge to their corporate data by using the Microsoft Graph. We will leverage different workloads including Emails, Events, Azure AD and SharePoint data.

Let's build the concierge we always wanted in under 60 minutes and be part of the revolution! This very demo-intensive session will make sure that at the end you get those 3 key takeaways :

- Understand the role of the Bot Framework and the Microsoft Graph to build great concierge experiences
- Have a complete sample where a bot targeting Information Workers can be relevant and useful in a real-world scenario
- Change the way you will think for your next software development project.

The modern intranet from 'start' to 'never finished'
Level: 200
Track: End-User, Business
The intranet never ends, and you're never finished. It's been termed "use & adoption" in the face of good change management. This session will focus on the realities of where your intranet starts - most like it's already started. And then where you go from there. The on-premises world has offered a ton of freedom, the kind that benefits and can cause issue. The cloud opens up almost endless potential, and you have to sign off on it and get there. Or maybe you start there on day one (what a treat this greenfield). Or you combine the best of both worlds that may be an overlap the what, where and how, plus morphing over time. We'll discuss realities, best practices, benefits and gotchas - with a highlight on the new, and a pulse on the now to set you up for the success of never finishing! Never surrender! Prepare. See you there.
