Chatting about Chatbots with Mike Kanakos, Microsoft MVP


Mike Kanakos is extremely active in the PowerShell community, so getting the opportunity to highlight all his contributions was pretty awesome for us. We got to talk about all of the ways we can contribute to PowerShell to keep it the best version of itself. We also did a quick dive into ChatBots and highlighted PoshBot, which can connect to several chat backends like Slack or Teams.
