Amit Jotwani recently combined Twilio, the Alexa Skills Kit, and AWS to create a really excellent service that delivered birthday wishes directly to his dad for his birthday. Friends and family would call and leave messages to Twilio and then, when Amit’s dad requested to hear his birthday wishes from Alexa, she read them off one by one.
Amit has delivered the source code and guide for developing and improving this skill yourself.
