We are happy to announce our transition to a new developer forum platform! We hope that this new platform will not only be a more accessible discussion experience for you, but will also allow us to provide better assistance to our developer community.
The forums can be found at forums.developer.amazon.com. You can choose from a variety of spaces including Alexa, General Android, Amazon Underground, Merch by Amazon, and Chinese and Japanese language support. In each space we have built a knowledge base of frequently asked questions and have a team of global moderators available to help you out. We invite you to ask questions, contribute answers, follow threads, and join our growing developer community online for support, sharing, and feedback.
For our veteran forum users - Don’t worry! Everything related to your past accounts has been automatically migrated to the new forum such as your username and post history. New users will be able to make new accounts and get involved in the discussion right away.
Although aesthetically different to our previous forum platform, you can still post questions and add comments or answers. Our new platform also provides the following additional benefits:
Find Answers More Quickly
Posts with correct answers will be displayed more prominently and the new advanced search will suggest relevant posts related to your questions, giving you more time for developing, less time for digging.
Earn Reputation Points and Badges
You can earn reputation points by contributing to the community and special badges for specific activities. How do you do that you ask? Simple. Engage! Ask questions, provide answers, and vote up content. The more you engage, the more you will be rewarded.
Personalize Your Experience
Set up your user profile to really stand out from the crowd. You can mark your favorite spaces on your home page to make them easier to navigate to or subscribe to specific, posts, topics or spaces and view these subscriptions from your profile page. Pick a personalized photo and watch as your badges and reputation points grow from engagement.
We’re really excited to see the new platform come to life, and we hope using it improves your development experience with Amazon. We’re looking forward to your feedback, so if you have any requests or concerns, we’ve create an additional space for you to reach out here.
See you on the developer forum!
