Amazon Offers New Alexa Developer Template for Looking Up Contact Information

Amazon is making it easier for developers to create skills that make it easy to lookup information stored on a specific contact through a new template available on GitHub.

The sample data included with this template lets you search for Alexa evangelists and solutions architects by name and by city. So you could say, “Alexa, ask Team Lookup to find me an evangelist in Seattle,” and your skill would respond with the names of the evangelists along with their Twitter, LinkedIn, and GitHub handles. You could also say things like, “Alexa, ask Team Lookup: Who is Dave?” and “Alexa, ask Team Lookup for Amit’s Twitter handle.”
