Power Virtual Agents In A Day – Getting started


With organizations increasingly investing in conversational bots to serve customers and employees, they look to Microsoft Power Virtual Agents to align to the future of bot building and empower all makers to create intelligent conversational bots.

The Power Virtual Agents in a Day (PVAIAD) events are free one-day workshops where you will learn how to create, integrate, extend, deploy and monitor conversational bots.

We are excited to invite customers and partners to join the Power Virtual Agents in a Day (PVAIAD) events and get hands-on with the technology!
