Recognizing Top Alexa Developers in the Community

Liam Sorta

Brighton, United Kingdom

Liam’s recent work includes the creation of a virtual reality game that use Alexa as an interfacing tool through a bridging technique that he later open sourced.

Liam founded and manages GameDevNetwork (GDN), a community of about 6,000 game developers of all backgrounds who come to network and learn. Given the continued evolution of voice technology, Liam is excited for the role that online communities like GDN can play in helping new developers get more involved in the industry and giving professionals the tools to bring their work to the next level.
