Build a Facebook Bot with the Vonage Messages API and Node.js - JuniorDevSG

Published on: Saturday, 20 February 2021

Speaker: Kevin Lewis

Users message a Facebook page, and it gets stored in a basic database. When they message ‘RECAP’ we return all messages they’ve sent to-date.

Target Audience:
Learners with low technical proficiency/confidence with JavaScript or the Vonage Messages API.

- JavaScript, Node.js, Express.js
- Vonage Messages API
- nedb (small file-based database)

You don’t need any technical skills, but if you know some JavaScript it will be useful. You’ll need to have:

- Node.js
- Code Editor
- A Vonage API account
- A Facebook account
