Developing for Alexa Workshop at SXSW 2017

If you’re looking for in-person events to help build your skills as an Alexa developer, there’s one coming up at SXSW in March.

SXSW runs March 10-14, 2017 in Austin, TX.

Session details…

Title: Speak Up! Build an Alexa Skill for a Cause

Abstract: Not a programmer, but interested in learning how to build an Alexa Skill? In this beginner-level workshop, you will learn how to apply UX best practices to voice, modify and host javascript on AWS Lambda, and submit a skill for certification. You will test the skill on a loaner device or simulator, and submit it for certification for future public use! Each attendee will select a cause and build a simple Skill to support awareness of it. At the end of this workshop, you’ll leave with new skills (ha), a portfolio piece, Amazon giveaways, and good karma!


BONUS: If you’re a serious developer and either already have Alexa skills or dying to add it to your resume, IT/Dev Connections 2017 in October is your best bet. IT/Dev Connections is an in-person, conference big on deep-dive learning without all the vendor hype and fluff.

IT/Dev Connections runs October 23-26, 2017 in San Francisco:
