Awesome projects & cool demos


If you are looking for help on Chatbots in general you might ask on Stackoverflow, but if you are build an ArcGIS Chatbot you should probably ask your questions on the REST API group on GeoNet and mention one of the experts on GeoNet.

People you should know

Please find the ArcGIS Experts on this topic using this tool:

They don't work on the support team and some may even not work at Esri, but they are opening some projects and sharing insights related to this technology so we recommend you to follow them.
