Building Alexa Skills with AWS Lambda


Welcome to the Alexa Skill Development course! In this course we will be building custom Alexa Skills using AWS Lambda Function.

The easiest way to build the cloud-based service for a custom Alexa skill is to use AWS Lambda, an Amazon Web Services offering that runs your code only when it’s needed and scales automatically, so there is no need to provision or continuously run servers. AWS Lambda supports code written in several languages, including Node.js, Java, and Python. For some languages, you can edit the code in the inline code editor in the AWS Lambda console.

What Will I Learn?

  • You will be able to build your own Alexa Skills.
  • These skills can be published to earn rewards and developer incentives.
