Today, we are seeing huge growth in the use of Voice Assistants, and Amazon’s Alexa has established herself as the clear market leader. This growth has been fueled by an enthusiastic Developer Community which has produced thousands of Alexa Skills adding to the attractiveness of the platform.
The Cambridge Alexa Developers Meetup will provide an opportunity for individuals with an interest in the Alexa platform to meet, share ideas, and benefit from the collective lessons learned by fellow members. And along the way enjoy some beer and pizza. (Non-alcoholic options available of course!)
This group is for developers of Alexa Skills, VUI/VUX designers, and anyone with an interest in the future of Voice Assistants and the #VoiceFirst movement; from beginners to experts, everyone is welcome.
To hear more information you can access the Cambridge Alexa Developers Meetup Alexa Skill by asking Alexa to "Open Cambridge Developers Meetup" and hear about the next event we have coming up.
So, if you have something you would like to talk about, topics you would like to see covered, or if you would like to showcase any of your Alexa Skills, please get in touch.
For our summer meetup we've got a really special lineup.
After the news with Rich and Bob we have.
Mark Tucker - Live from the USA talking to us about his open source project Speech Markdown. A great alternative to SSML allowing more people to make great voice experiences.
James 'JP' Poulter - CEO of Vixen Labs and part of the team that brought us Voice Masters. James will be giving us an overview of Vixen Labs and how the Voice Masters course came into existence.
It's going to be a scorcher!
