Alexa, teach me Spanish! 🇪🇸
Short workshop - in English
Amazon's Alexa is built into more and more audio devices. Combine this with cloud functions, and you have a great playground for fun and useful projects.
In this workshop, you will learn how to build an Alexa skill that helps you memorize vocabulary when learning a new language. We're using Spanish because it's what we know, but you'll be able to adapt it to whichever language you want.
+ Quick introduction to Alexa skills
+ Setting up the dev environment
+ Understanding the serverside components
+ Deploying the function to AWS
+ Writing the Alexa skill
+ Practice Spanish with Alexa
Primarily for: Developers
Participant requirements: A laptop, ideally with Visual Studio Code installed, and an AWS account. The latter can be fixed quickly during the workshop though.
