Talks Details

* ANDREA MUTTONI Sr. Solutions Architect, Evangelist, Amazon Alexa

Using Amazon’s Alexa Skills Kit, AWS Lambda and the NodeJS backend JavaScript framework, Andrea takes us through the key steps of building an Alexa Skill. We'll learn about the Alexa Presentation Language (APL) which devs can use to build skills with voice and visual experiences using conditional layouts and data binding.
This talk will also cover Alexa In Skill Purchasing - making money from all of the above!

Andrea is a Technical Evangelist for Amazon Alexa. In this role, Andrea travels the world sharing stories, learnings and best practices for building voice-enabled experiences, aka Skills, with Alexa. Previously, Andrea worked on both sides of software development as a full stack developer and as a product manager. When not prototyping new Alexa Skill ideas or championing the needs of developers, he enjoys composing music and working on random projects with NodeJS + TypeScript + Webpack + React + Redux. For the latter, he hopes one day to spend the majority of his time coding and not fighting with the build process. You can reach out to him on Twitter at @muttonia.
