Building Your First Voice Experience with Alexa

Presented by: Jeff Blankenburg
Time: Tuesday, Jan. 11, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This workshop will dive right in to getting you set up and started building a voice-based experience with Alexa. You will leave this session with a working Alexa skill that you can customize and publish as your own.

We will cover topics around voice design best practices, voice interactions, persistence, and making calls to external APIs.

This session will be taught using node.js, but you don't have to have prior experience as a node developer.
