Alexa is the voice service that powers devices like the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Tap. For this course, we’ll be using the Echo Dot, but you can use any of these or even a simulator.
Here’s what you’ll make
In this course, you'll learn how to build your own Alexa skill. You'll create an interactive dictionary of technical terms. With the hands-free experience, you'll be able to ask Alexa a question about technical terms, and have Alexa respond with a definition. By the end of this course you'll be ready to submit your skill for certification to be published for other Alexa users to enable — all with no prior experience with programming.
