In October of last year we worked with Hackster.io to launch the Amazon Alexa API Mashup Contest challenging developers to connect their favorite public APIs to Alexa. Developers submitted 163 projects that connected Alexa to the APIs of companies like Slack, Medium, Yelp, and many others.
Special thanks to everyone who competed in this contest. We were impressed by the creativity, quality, and high number of entries. We encourage you to browse through the projects. Each one comes with source code and documentation that might be a helpful reference when you code your next Alexa skill.
With the U.S. National Parks skill you can experience U.S. national parks through Alexa. Hear a waterfall at Yosemite, a geyser at Yellowstone, a volcano at Hawaii Volcanoes, or a bear from the Great Smoky Mountains.
