Tutorial: Build an Engaging Alexa Skill

Welcome to our introductory tutorial on building an engaging Alexa skill. This tutorial is for anyone with beginner-level coding experience including software developers, voice developers, solution architects, user interface (UI) developers, and voice designers.

What You'll Learn: You will get hands-on experience using the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK), learn to design an engaging voice user interface (VUI), and build a custom Alexa skill called Cake Time from scratch. After completing this tutorial, you will be ready to create Alexa skills that customers will love.

This tutorial is written for Node.js developers using our Node.js SDK, however we have links out to our Python course in Github starting in Step 3. Material is the same for both languages until that point. 

Time Required: 90 - 120 Minutes
