Alexa Champions

Recognizing Top Alexa Developers in the Community

Arjun Ganesan

Chennai, India

I am a Full Stack Web Developer currently working for OrangeScape as a Technical Architect building Kissflow - a Digital Workplace (for which I am currently building an Alexa skill as well). My foray into Alexa started with me participating in an Alexa Skills contest conducted by hackster.io in which I won the first place. Then I started exploring more and built few skills. When APL was introduced I was very much intrigued by it. I started designing screens using the APL json but felt a tool with easy drag/drop interface can help me to design screens faster. So I built the APL Designer, a tool to design skills with APL. I got some great feedback from alexa devs for this tools. That's when I decided instead of just building skills I would build tools for my fellow Alexa devs and help them build great skills.
