Details

Since 2011, voice assistants have entered our lives slowly but steadily. It wasn't until 2014 when Amazon created their Echo version with their integrated assistant. In 2018 it was the first year when people could create their own skills, and create their very own voice assistant apps.

✨ What we are going to discuss in this webinar?

In this workshop we are going to be teaching you how you can build an Alexa skill by using different platforms, some of them won't need any coding experience since they are no-code tools.

We will go through the basic concepts that you'll need to develop a voice app and we will go deeper on the platforms Alexa allows us to use to create Skills without writing code. These platforms are Alexa Skill Flow Builder, Litexa, and VoiceFlow.

✨ What will you learn at this event?

Apart from learning how to develop an Alexa Skill, this workshop is meant to make attendees aware of how much they can improve theirs and others life by simply creating apps which are based in voice interactions.

✨ Who is this for?

1. Tech leads: New apps are continuously being created with these platforms. It is a great moment to learn more about this trend.

2. Product managers: Great opportunity to detect new features or interactions of a product.

3. If you love tech and want to learn new things this is for you too!
