But it seems like Microsoft is ready to ramp up its bot-building tools and messaging in the coming few months.

Microsoft is working on v4 of its Bot Builder software development kit and has open sourced that SDK, as noted by Gary Pretty, Technical Strategist at Mando and Microsoft AI Most Valuable Professional (MVP). And both Python and Java support are coming to this version of the SDK, alongside existing C#, .NET and JavaScript options. (The Python and Java GitHub pages are not yet live, as Pretty notes.)


Microsoft knows that Python and Java are largely used platforms in web development world its great to see them embracing this new platform.
