Amazon Alexa is the voice service that powers devices like the Amazon Echo. With Alexa, you can do everything—turn your lights on and off, play your favorite songs, and order a pizza just by speaking to it! In this session, you'll learn how to easily create a new Alexa Skill service without the need to manage any server infrastructure. By combining AWS services such as AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, and the Alexa Skills Kit, we’ll create a new skill, test it, deploy it, and show you how you can start adding your own capabilities to Alexa.
