AWS - Getting Started with Cloud Skills

The Cloud Skills Kit is a collection of self-service APIs, tools, documentation and code samples that make it fast and easy for you to add skills to Alexa. All of the code runs in the cloud — nothing is installed on any user device. With the Cloud Skills Kit, you can create compelling, hands-free voice experiences by adding your own skills to Alexa.

  1. Cloud Skill Kit - Color Expert

    Through this task, you'll learn to create a simple but complete Cloud skill that can run on Amazon Echo or any Alexa-enabled device. All you'll need to get started is the Cloud Skills Kit from the Amazon Developer site, AWS Lambda, and Python.

    Task


    Note: As you will be working on a US Regional version of Lambda, you will need to watch the spelling of certain words, such as color and favorite

    Evidence

    You have successfully created a Cloud skill. Test it on your Amazon Echo or any Alexa-enabled device by saying, "Alexa, open Colorful." If you don't have an Alexa-enabled device, use the Service Simulator on the current page (you should be in the "Test" step of Colorful development). Try entering "Open Colorful" or "My favorite color is red" to see how Alexa responds.

    Take a screenshot or record a video of your skill in action.
