Many of us have always wanted to build our own bot, but writing code in a programming language like Python or JavaScript can be intimidating. However, it is possible to build a bot without writing a single line of code, using a tool called Azure Logic Apps.

Now, what are Azure Logic Apps?

 

Azure Logic Apps is a cloud platform that allows you to create and run automated workflows with minimal coding required. It is fully managed by Microsoft Azure, meaning you don't have to worry about hosting, scaling, or maintaining your solution. The platform also provides hundreds of pre-built connectors, making it easy to connect and integrate apps, data, services, and systems.
