The Amazon Alexa team has collaborated with Big Nerd Ranch, known globally for its highly effective immersive development bootcamps and app development services, to develop deep technical training courses for the Alexa Skills Kit. Today we launch a new developer education experience that showcases all the free learning materials created in collaboration with Big Nerd Ranch.
Our six educational modules will dive into building voice user interfaces using the Alexa Skills Kit. The training materials will teach you about the Alexa skill architecture and interface configuration, slots and utterances, sessions and voice user interfaces, persistence, account linking, and certification and testing.
Each module page features a variety of learning materials:
- Short and sweet videos you can easily share, save for later, or add to your own playlist on YouTube,
- Learning objectives that summarize what you will learn,
- Reference links to find more about Alexa Skills Kit features and technologies covered in the training,
- Code samples on GitHub to follow along and build custom Alexa skills,
- Condensed posts published on the Alexa blog,
- Complete study guides to learn more and solve bonus challenges.
