November 20 - Geektime TechFest in Tel Aviv
If you're at all interested in tech and were in Isreal on November 20th, this is exactly where you wanted to be! On top of a conference and a hackathon, Geektime TechFest also hosted a startup competition that boasted some pretty fabulous ideas including the winner of the competition, Imperson, which is a chat bot that promotes and sells products and services. There were so many fun times and too many pictures to pick just a few to post here. Check out their Facebook Page to see a bunch of fabulous moments from the event!
November 22 - Chatbot Summit in Tel Aviv
Speaking of chatbots, Chatbot Summit featured some of the greatest minds in the chatbot world who came together to talk, teach, and learn about the future of automated messaging. Taking place as part of Geektime TechFest, it was a simple to go back and forth and include Chatbots in the realm of technology as a whole.
