H03 Build Your First 'Copilot' with .NET and the Semantic Kernel


8:00 am - 9:15 am

Level: Intermediate

Brian A. Randell

Staff Developer Advocate


In this session, Brian will cover how to build a ‘copilot’ using C# Microsoft’s Semantic Kernel open-source SDK. First he’ll provide an introduction to the Semantic Kernel framework, its capabilities, and how it can be leveraged in .NET environments. He’ll then cover integrating Semantic Kernel with a .NET project. This section will include a demonstration of setting up the necessary environment, libraries, and tools required to integrate Semantic Kernel with C# code effectively. Finally, he’ll demonstrate how to build a simple yet functional 'copilot' application using C# and Semantic Kernel. Attendees will learn how to apply the concepts and integration techniques in a real-world scenario, gaining practical skills, and insights into the development process.

You will learn:

  • What is Microsoft’s Semantic Kernel
  • How to configure your development environment for using Semantic Kernel
  • How to build your first ‘copilot’ with C# and the Semantic Kernel SDK
