What is Alexa?
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 capabilities through the Alexa Voice Service include the ability to play music, answer general questions, set an alarm or timer, and more.
The Alexa Skills Kit is a collection of self-service APIs, tools, documentation and code samples that make it fast and easy for you to add skills to Alexa.
At this skill building workshop, Liz Myers from the Alexa Skills Kit team will be onsite to help you add your own capabilities (skills) to Alexa.
Why You Should Learn to create Alexa Skills
Once certified, your new skills will be published in the Alexa app which will in and of itself be a great addition to your portfolio.
