Build a Skill with Sessions, Persisted Data, and Cards

Training Module #3

During this module, you will construct an intermediate skill called Pizza Buddy. This skill will allow users to place pizza orders, and query orders that have been made. We will use the session to design a multi-stage ordering process. We will store and retrieve orders using a Postgres relational database. We will use Datamapper as the translation later (ORM) between our Sinatra application and the Postgres database. Finally, we will post cards to the user, displaying simple information about the orders that have been made. This module covers:

  • Persisting information to a local database
  • Defining a LaunchRequest intent declaration
  • Using simple cards
