At Alexa Live, you’ll discover the latest product advances, improve your techniques, and expand on what you can build for your brand or device. Register now.

A Half-day of Content Designed for the Alexa Developer Community

The second year of Alexa Live brings skill builders and device makers together with experts for a half-day of learning and inspiration. You’ll hear from Amazon leaders about the latest in voice technology and Alexa developer tools, and more than 30 expert speakers from both inside and outside Amazon will showcase new capabilities in 16 educational sessions. No matter how you build with Alexa, you’ll leave understanding the latest capabilities for creating more delightful voice experiences for more customers in less time.

New this year is content specifically about smart home and other device development, and a new track focused on development services from solution providers that can help you with strategy and integration. We’ve updated our Alexa content to include brand-new technical sessions led by Alexa evangelists featuring demonstrations from early-adopter developers.

During the event you’ll be able to chat live with Alexa skill-building experts, product teams, Alexa Champions, and your peers to answer business and technical questions. Sessions will also feature successful developers, some using qualified agencies, systems integrators, or original design manufacturers (ODMs) to help bring products to market faster.
