Alexa, Amazon’s voice-controlled assistant, is incredibly easy to build for, with a developer API that lets you add custom functionality. Bobby Johnson walks you through building Alexa skills for the sole purpose of having fun with your kids. You’ll discover what’s possible and learn how to add functionality as you create your own skills (Alexa customizations)—whether for your kids, your pets, or purely for your own personal enjoyment. You’ll also see what’s needed to release a skill publicly.
