My Alexa Skill Webinar

I’ve been creating lots of YouTube videos on Alexa, but on Sunday, April 26th, I held my first live webinar! Since many of us are at home, I thought it would be nice to help everyone learn something new, such as developing Alexa skills. It was a great experience, and I am proud and amazed that over 350 people signed up! It was awesome to see that people of all ages attended, from 8-year-old kids to experienced professionals.

During the hour-long webinar, I covered the basics: what Alexa is, different Echo devices, etc. I also spoke about the two main methods for creating Alexa skills: through Alexa Skill Blueprints and through the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK). I hope everyone who attended enjoyed it and created some exciting Alexa skills!
