Build a Skill, Earn Developer Perks

Are you a developer or designer in India? Bring your big idea to life with Alexa and earn perks through our incentive program.

Publish an Alexa skill this month and get a free, limited-edition Alexa developer t-shirt. All skill types are eligible for this promotion. You can use our templates to get started quickly, and then build the skill of your dreams.

If more than 100 customers enable and use your skill in the first 30 days of publication, you could also receive an Echo Dot.

After you publish your skill, don't forget to spread the word about it. Start building today.

Looking for inspiration? Consider creating a skill around ‘Cultural India’, like a skill that showcases cultural traditions in India, a skill about India’s rich history, or even a skill that educates customers on Indian mythology. Submit your themed skill for a chance to earn an Amazon Echo in addition to the limited-edition t-shirt.

Don't have an Amazon Echo device? Test your skill using the Test Simulator for Alexa Skills.
