Alexa, the voice service that powers Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and Amazon Fire TV provides a set of built-in abilities, or skills, that enable customers to interact with devices in a more intuitive way using voice. Examples of these skills include the ability to play music, answer general questions, set an alarm or timer and more. Customers can then access these new skills simply by asking Alexa a question or making a command. This session will be a walkthrough of the latest Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) and will teach you how to build your own skills for Alexa enabled devices. You will also learn how to monitor your new skill using AWS CloudWatch and how to test your skill using AWS Lambda Unit Tests and the Alexa Voice and Service Simulators.
