Bot dialog cancellation and interruption is used to expand you bot's capabilities in waterfall dialogs in Bot Framework SDK bots. They are meant to enable you to quit your dialog if you don't want to finish it or to create custom interrupts to, for example, call for help in the middle of a dialog if you don't know how to proceed.
Writing bot dialogs has a lot to do with planning because you have to have all the dialog flow planned before you start writing your dialog. You also need to manage your dialog state and have a way to stop a dialog if needed.
Dialogs are a highlight of BotFramework SDK and they are at it's centre. Through them, you can write comprehensive conversations that the bot will engage in with users. Rather than having a bot that just responds to user with a predefined message to a specific keyword. With botframework dialogs, bots can give you real "dialog" experience.

Earlier this year, we got a new lab server from Supermicro to experiment with. This is a great asset to speed up our work and to set up and learn new environments. We do a lot of experimentation with docker environments and this server is perfect for that.
