Workshop: Amazon Alexa

The Amazon Echo is more than a home toy – you can have the real star trek experience in your home w/ hooks into home automation platforms, streaming music, news, help you cook, tell you jokes, etc. We will go over how to make them via AWS Lamba+Groovy. Lee Fox and I will bring some devices (Feel free to BYOD if you’d like!) or we’ll just be use the emulator developing Lambda Groovy Alexa Skills. You can open a free tier AWS account if you can before hand, if you can’t don’t worry – we’ll have some account access keys and login stood up to build skills and push them to the internet via development mode.
