As coronavirus affects more and more people every day, unfortunately, we had to make a decision to cancel the event this month.

It's so sad to make this decision but health comes first.

What can Alexa do? Order pizza? Change music? Turn on the lights? Yes, it is normal nowadays, nothing fancy. Then how about… controlling the AWS environment using Alexa?

You might call me crazy, but the fun is so huge when I am already in bed and say “Alexa, terminate all instances!”. And this is only the beginning.

Let me take you on my journey with Alexa, from the first steps, when I was struggling with simple tasks, to the very complex skill I have now. Let me share with you my bold plans about the future of my project.

“Alexa, create a show!”
