Building Dynamics 365 Bots with Azure Bot Framework and LUIS

 Conversations as a platform have been touted by companies including Microsoft and Facebook as the next generation of software user interface. With the introduction of publicly accessible frameworks for building chat bots that can be accessed via everything from Email to Skype to SMS, Dynamics CRM is perfectly poised to take advantage of this new way of interfacing.
