Design Build Tips & Tools Productivity

Today, we’re excited to share a new YouTube video series called Developer FAQs, which provides step-by-step video tutorials to answer your frequently asked questions. In this series, we’ll cover topics ranging from how to integrate different Alexa APIs, to designing a great voice user experience, to development tools that can improve your productivity. Our goal with this series is to provide you with a new resource—quick tutorial videos—that can complement your learning process. We also want to provide our community with a new forum to answer common technical questions on a wide range of topics.

We know that learning new concepts and tools can be challenging, which is why we’re providing the videos in the format of a step-by-step tutorial. What else can you expect from these videos? Videos about programming will be structured around live coding, with explanations provided at each step along the way. Videos about development tools will focus on explaining the use cases and benefits of the tool, and go over how to use the tool. Each video will also have a companion tutorial on the Alexa blog and code sample on the Alexa Cookbook GitHub repo, so you can deepen and improve your learning.

Ready to get started? Check out this video from the new series, then head over to YouTube to explore the rest. And we’re just getting started with the series, so you can expect even more content to come!

We hope this new video series will help answer your technical questions more quickly, so that you can focus on the creative aspects of building great Alexa skills!
