Can anyone point me to a diagram and logical architecture of an actual skill in action, end-to-end?

Would be super useful to see a skill diagrammatically flowed out in a logical architecture format, ie avs to skill to lambda to my backend, etc.

Customer speaks to Alexa (AVS) where the custom interaction model kicks in and send the request off to the skill service which can be hosted on Lambda or elsewhere.
