We have four presenters for our third meetup, which is focused on smart home integrations and skills for Alexa.

We'll be meeting at the AWS Popup Loft, which is a space where anyone can grab a coffee, work on their app, and get in-person answers to their technical AWS questions - at no cost. Feel free to come by earlier in the day to hang out and do work at the Loft.

About our speakers:

Amit Jotwani, a senior evangelist for Amazon Alexa, will give an overview of the smart home + Alexa ecosystem and how to use Alexa as an interface for smart home devices.

Rohit Sriram, product manager at Ecobee, the smart thermostat company, will be speaking about Alexa + Ecobee.

Chris Becker, a software engineer at Warby Parker, will be presenting an Alexa skill called The Dishwasher, which provides a voice interface for interacting with your dishwasher.

Sylvain Lemiere, director of backend at Wink, will be talking about the Wink + Alexa skill. Wink allows users to link and control their smart home devices from a single digital dashboard.

Pizza and soft drinks will be provided!
