Build Chatbots with PHP

Finally a Starting Point for Your Php Chatbot

What Others Say

Christoph's Chatbot book is a great way to enter the world of chatbots with PHP. It covers everything to get your first chatbot up and running and will leave you inspired to build your own.
Marcel Pociot
I'm glad that we partnered with Christoph on the Laracon EU chatbot. The chatbot is a fun and reliable way for our attendees to get information, plan their own schedule, and be kept up to date with current announcements. We think that it's great that the chatbot's development is chronicled in his book and that everyone can learn from that project.

This ebook contains more than 200 pages and will teach your everything you need to know about building chatbots with PHP.

Benefit from my experience and let me teach you everything you need to know to build chatbots in PHP.

When I started building chatbots in 2016 there wasn't a single tutorial available on how to do that with PHP. The only way of learning how to do so was by trial and error, but I made it through! Now, two years later, you will find some blog posts on the subject, but still not much. With this book, I want to change that and give everyone the perfect starting point for building chatbots with PHP.

Which ebook formats do I get?

The main version of the book is a PDF. There is also an EPUB and MOBI version available, but the design is best with the PDF.

€39? The other ebook I bought only cost €5.

I can't tell how other authors calculate their book prices but I can tell you about me. I took me about 400 - 500 hours to build the book the course, the website, the store, the blog articles...

When you think about this you will notice that this project was not about making money :-) I could have done something else to get rich ;-) But what it was about providing value and share my experience in a new field. With this book you are able to create your own first chatbots for yourself, your company or a client. So I really do think it is worth the price.

Can I get a customized invoice?

After your purchase with Stripe or PayPal you automatically get an invoice. If you need something differently or specific for your company, use the provided contact details from the mail to contact me.
