This site will take you beyond the book to show you how to build even more data-driven Alexa Skills. You will learn to use data to give your Alexa skills dynamic intelligence, in-depth knowledge, and the ability to remember.
This site is for the next generation of Alexa skill developers who want to use data to make Alexa smarter, more relevant, and more helpful. To move closer to the goal of ambient computing, Alexa will need to access and combine data from many sources in many ways. If you imagine the day when Alexa can intelligently manage your email, the day when she can reconcile your schedules from Outlook, Google, Apple, and Calendly, the day when you can ask her to tell you your net worth, or the day when you can ask her to log a ticket in ServiceNow, this site is for you.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Data-Driven Alexa Skills. Come along as we take a journey beyond the typical Hello World examples and design and build innovative, custom, data-driven Alexa skills for your home or business that integrate Alexa with online APIs, rich data sources, and powerful applications.
Data-Driven Alexa Skills takes a step-by-step approach to skill development.
In the book, you began by configuring a skill in the Alexa Skill Builder Console. Then you developed an advanced custom skill that used the latest Alexa Skill Development Kit features to integrate with lambda functions, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and internet data feeds. These skills enabled you to link user accounts, query and store data using a No-SQL database, and access stock prices and more via web APIs.
Go beyond the book as we dive even further into the world of Data-Driven Alexa Skills.
