For the last couple of weeks, Graham, Marcel, Sinem and I have been experimenting with Amazon’s Alexa Echo Dot. An Electric Hockey Puck that uses voice recognition powered by Amazon Alexa voice assistant. In this blog I’d like to explain how one goes about creating their first Alexa skill.
In March 2016, as a part my annual training budget - a perk that every badger gets - I had the opportunity to go to the Fluent Conf, which was in sunny San Francisco. One of the workshops I attended was about building a basic desktop application with Electron, that’d be compiled for every major OS and I’d like to share the knowledge and the takeaways I grasped during a 3 hour long session.
