Darian Johnson is a technology consultant with deep experience implementing complex software architectures and leading large-scale software delivery programs. He currently works for Accenture as a member of their Amazon Web Services practice.
Darian has always enjoyed researching new technologies, so he eagerly used the tools and templates provided by the Alexa team to learn about skill development. His first skill combined his passion for fitness with his interest in machine learning. His Mystic Mirror skill (which interacts with a smart mirror to send notifications on time, traffic, news and reminders) won second place in Alexa's Internet of Voice challenge on Hackster.io.
Darian continues to contribute to the Alexa community, by sharing the source code to his projects, providing feedback to other developers and blogging about expanding the use of Alexa in his home.
Darian’s favorite thing about Alexa skill development is that is allows him to involve his family. His dream is that one day the entire family will develop an Alexa skill together.
