We’re super excited to announce the launch of our new learning platform — the Botpress Learning Center. Filled with a growing number of tutorials and videos, the Learning Center will help developers master building chatbots and conversational experiences using Botpress.
As a developer-first platform, our mission has always been to help developers excel at building great chatbots with ease. This ethos led to the launch of our open-source chatbot stack back in 2017 — a rich development environment that provides all the tools for creating amazing conversational experiences without a team of data scientists and ML experts.
As our product has grown, our documentation has expanded to support developers using Botpress. But we also realized we could do more to support developer learning. Knowing that every great developer loves to continuously learn, we decided to create a place where developers can come to learn about both Botpress and conversational AI in general.
That place is the Botpress Learning Center — a one-stop resource to level up your career by learning about Botpress and conversational AI.
Featuring guides, videos, and interactive elements, the Learning Center will help developers master Botpress and other fundamentals of chatbots and conversational AI. To start, it features key lessons for devs to get started with Botpress and with chatbots. As we expand the Learning Center, we’ll add more content to keep the learning going.

Designed to Evolve for Developers
In order to keep this a fresh, helpful (and fun) resource, we plan to update the Learning Center with new content regularly. And because the aim is to provide content that helps with your learning, we’d love to hear from you.
