Join us for an introduction to building compelling voice experiences for Alexa, the service that powers millions of devices, including Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. This free, one-day, hands-on learning experience will be held on 16 April 2018 at 14 Albert Square, Manchester M2 5PF, UK. We will be joined on the day by Apadmi, who will be talking to us about their best practices for voice design.
The day features an intro to Alexa and an in-depth training course on building skills with the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK), a collection of self-service APIs, tools, documentation and code samples that make it fast and easy for you to add skills to Alexa. Furthermore, we will guide you through the process of publishing your skill to the UK Amazon Skill store.
We will be giving away an Echo Show on the day to one lucky attendee who demos their skill during the hacking session!
This session is aimed at those who haven't built an Alexa skill before.
Please bring a fully charged laptop to the event and you will need to create an Amazon Developer account here and an AWS account here prior to arrival.
Spaces are limited, so please register here as soon as possible.
