    What we're about

    Google has Google Now, Apple has Siri, Microsoft has Cortana, and now Amazon has Alexa and Echo! Amazon Echo is the voice controlled smart assistant that takes a new and innovative approach to speech controlled interaction. Amazon has seriously ramped up its efforts to get developers working on apps and new interactions with Echo.

    This Meetup will bring together people interested in growing speech recognition technology with smart home and digital assistant innovation. While the focus will be on developing new software, this group will try to provide non-developers with support for their ideas for Echo and Alexa-enabled devices.
