It’s that time of the year again; I can’t believe time goes by so quickly. This year I had the chance to talk about Amazon’s Alexa Service and building skills for your Echo. This is probably my latest obsession if you ask my wife. 🙂
We had a good mix of attendees, some had already created skills before and some had devices but not ventured into skill building. We covered the mapping of utterances to handlers, building Voice User Interfaces (VUI) and the benefits of using AWS’ Lambda service before doing a demo of a skill that recommended a session to attend during the conference. The presentation is available in SlideShare for those interested.
