Alexa, turn on the lights. Alexa, tell me the weather. Alexa may have become integrated into your daily life due to having many skills to choose from, but how can you make a skill for you and your home or purpose? We’ll go over how to create your first skill by using the Alexa Skills Kit and how to push it to AWS Lambda. We’ll also cover what is next for Alexa and the different APIs Amazon has released in preview. With the rise in sales of Amazon Echos and Dots over the holiday season, who doesn’t have one or two or even a few in their house. And who wouldn’t want to create some skills to personalize their Alexa, or just play a few tricks on the kids.
