Building voice experiences for Amazon Echo with Alexa Skills (18/9)

Hi devs! 

We are back again with another great event for this month!

Have you ever wanted to build an Alexa Skill? Now is your opportunity to join us for a half day (1/2) session in the Amazon Barcelona office on the 18th of September to learn the basics to publish your first Skill.

Alexa is the voice-based service within Amazon Echo, incorporates a set of skills, that allow users to interact with different technologies and services using natural language. Developers can also create custom Skills that can be published in the Alexa App Store and used from any device that incorporates Alexa. During this session we will talk about why we believe voice is the future of the user experience (UX), take a look at the structure of the Alexa Engine and finally demonstrate how to build a custom Alexa Skill with the Alexa Skills Kit SDK for Java and AWS Lambda. This will be the agenda of the event:

  • 14:00-14:30 Register
  • 14:30-15:00 Intro to Alexa
  • 15:00-16:00 Designing a voice interaction model
  • 16:00-16:30 Coffee-break
  • 16:30-18:00 Building the backend (with AWS Lambda & Java) 

The session will be led by Alexa Evangelists German Viscuso and Memo Doring. German works in Alexa Skills Kit Spain as Technology Evangelist and he is a fan of computers since he was 8 years old. He started his professional career as a software developer and later transitioned into developer advocacy roles. Memo is Senior Solutions Architect at Amazon Alexa and has 10 years of experience in the field of mobile technologies, serving in a variety of positions at Research In Motion, Apple and Amazon. He currently focuses on working with developers to help them successfully create new skills for Amazon Alexa.
