Alexa, the voice service that powers Amazon Echo, provides capabilities, or skills, that enable customers to interact with devices in a more intuitive way using voice. Examples of skills include the ability to play music, answer general questions, set an alarm or timer, and more.
On Thursday, December 8th, we bring you the Hackster.io + Amazon Alexa workshop!
Rob McCauley, Solutions Architect from Amazon, will be teaching Alexa Skill Building 101 starting at 5:30pm. In this talk, intended for software and hardware developers interested in voice control, home automation, and personal assistant technology, we will walk through the development of a new Alexa skill and incorporate it into a consumer-facing device.
The talk will be followed by refreshments and an evening of hacking.
