Hackster & Amazon Present: Alexa Skill Building 101

Sat Jul 23rd
12:00

Alexa is the speech and personal assistant technology behind Amazon Echo. Today you can use Alexa to listen to music, play games, check traffic and weather, control your household devices such as Philips Hue and Belkin WeMo, and lots more. Alexa offers a full-featured set of APIs and SDKs that you can use to teach her new skills and add her into devices and applications of your own.

On Saturday July 23rd we bring you the Hackster.io + Amazon Alexa workshop!

Memo Doring, Alexa Developer Evangelist at Amazon, will be teaching Alexa Skill Building 101 starting at noon. 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 snacks and sandwiches and an afternoon of hacking. Finish off the day with incredible prizes sponsored by Amazon.
