23 September, 2020 @ 18:30 - 19:30


Dear Members,

We are pleased to announce the next online Meetup dedicated to scaling Conversational Experiences with ChatBots!

Chatbots have been one of the most hyped consumer and business technologies around, taking a lot of market share within Machine Learning and AI projects. Nowadays every company, from small to big, wants to deliver new ways of communicating with their clients and collaborators and most of them want perfect, smart, and funny chatbots!

Well.. building engaging conversational AI chatbot solutions can be complex to achieve, and even though some platforms can ease that pain, there is always room for improvement, evolution, and scaling.

How can we scale chatbots? How can our teams increase their productivity? How can we Automate Chatbot tests?

We hope this meetup session can clear up these questions and others that may raise and discuss a bit of Chatbots, Serverless architectures, Cloud-native solutions, and a bit of DevOps.

In this talk, Julian Andrade and José Rodrigues will share their practical experience and knowledge in scaling Chatbot in real-world and complex environments. They will cover the main themes of Chatbot and how to leverage DevOps, AI and Cloud. Hands-demo will be performed. The talk will be preferably held in Portuguese, followed by a Q&A session.

The event is organized jointly with the Link Consulting, TICE.Leiria. La Redoute is sponsoring the event providing the conference material. It will take place on Zoom, we will communicate the link prior to the event. The password in case required : #tice

TALK – Build, deploy, analyze and scale Chatbots

SPEAKER – Julian Andrade

Tech lead @LinkConsulting specialized on enterprise application integrations and chatbot solutions. Experienced building and architecting enterprise Chatbot solutions supported on Serverless Architectures and Cloud Native Apps with Google and Oracle Cloud’s. Julian is also a certified Google Cloud Associate Engineer. On a personal side, his a passionate biker and sports enthusiast.


SPEAKER – José Rodrigues

Jose is an experienced application and solutions architect who understands and appreciates the impact IT brings to the world.
Currently, he heads the Integration, Distributed Architectures (or Cloud-Native, Microservices, Serverless as they are now called) and Innovative Digital Channels service portfolio at Link Consulting, a highly-specialized boutique IT consulting company. He also manages Link’s main technology partnerships.

A strong believer that an IT architect needs to “get his hands dirty” and not “just draw boxes”, he keeps coding as much as he can, either on work-related projects (mainly Presales stuff: demos, MVPs and PoCs) or when sharing knowledge (training, conference demos).
Jose is also a strong communicator, with several presentations in conferences like Oracle Open World, Oracle Code One, DOAG, NLOUG, NOUG, and others, and a mentor, having supervised more than a few MSc theses and mentoring several software engineers within the company.

This experience has given him the ability to translate complex IT and business problems into easy to understand descriptions and approaches, making it easy to address those problems with solutions that are efficient and well built.
Since 2017 he’s been working more on distributed architecture patterns (cloud-native, microservices, serverless), focusing on integration (with a strong emphasis on API design and best-practices) and data management in distributed applications. In his own words, he loves APIs.
