AWS re:Invent 2015 is a learning conference with breakout sessions covering a broad range of topics and technical depth. All sessions will be delivered by subject matter experts, engineers, or expert customers who can share their real world experiences and lessons learned.  



This year’s conference will feature three tracks of content to help mobile app and game developers build apps, engage customers and monetize more effectively. We will also feature Amazon Alexa in the new #IoT track showcasing what partners like Capital One and BMW have built as well as a two-hour hand-on workshop where you can learn how to build Skills for Alexa on real devices.

This was a great week for Amazon announcements benefiting developers. Our really big news, the public release of the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK), was reported by VentureBeat, TechCrunch, Gizmodo, and many others. ProgrammableWeb covered the launch of the Fire OS 5 developer preview, which provides early access to new OS features and updates. In other news, TechNewsWorld contemplated streaming games, Amazon, and nothing less than the future of electronic entertainment while PocketGamer.biz shared our summer plans for the beach. Our $50 app promotion, which ends July 1, also generated a lot of buzz (see PCWorld, AndroidPolice, AndroidAuthority, for example). DroidGamers reported on an update to Kingdom Rush Origins, and AndroidHeadlines featured Amazon’s Cloud Drive app as one of the top new Android apps of the week.

Amazon Opens Developer Preview for Fire OS 5

Heck, it's even available to BlackBerry 10 smartphones. About a year ago Amazon claimed to offer 175,000 apps in the Amazon Appstore. It hasn't updated that number in recent memory. Either way you look at it, there are plenty of apps in there. Continue reading…
