Introduction To Alexa Skills

by Steven Pears

In this talk we'll look into what makes up a skill that works with Amazon Echo and the Alexa assistant. We'll look at the configuration and code required to build a Skill using .NET Core, some tips to write a more usable skill, and the differences between when you're writing them for yourself and for your business.

Steven has been enjoying .NET since the beta landed on his desk next to his folder full of MSDN CDs. Somehow maintaining gainful employment while at the same time loving regular expressions, working with local newspaper companies and construction software created a path that led him to Nottingham where he now works for Experian.


This month at Tech On Toast we'll be giving away a 1 year subscription to a JetBrains product of your choice, including Resharper, IntelliJ and PHPStorm. Attend and tweet on the #TechOnToast hashtag to be in with a chance of winning!
