12. Technologies on the field Four main categories of tech composing a bot Stores Stores help manage state from conversational interactions as your bot might need to recall things. Stores hold conversation data and keep track of what state the system is in. Services Services are in charge of making API requests, parsing data, and formatting responses for our handlers. Message handler The role of the handler is to handle the message passed from Messenger, delegate tasks to services, and send messages back to the user. Messenger Messenger is where you receive messages and route them to an appropriate handler. The point of Messenger is provide a layer of abstraction on top of bot APIs.

13. Interactions and Integrations Chatbots are entirely API-driven and event-driven Receive message from user Understand request and generate answer Update conversation state Reply to user Submit request to third party system

 to build the bot for (e.g. Telegram, WeChat, FB, Twitter, Kik, or another)? SMS
