Hacking on the Amazon Alexa with AWS Lambda and APIs
Amazon has been an early pioneer in transforming legacy systems to a services-based API model. More recently, the Amazon Alexa team has refactored the Alexa Skills Kit reference architecture from one requiring server instances into a serverless model using AWS Lambda. Rob will provide an overview of the Alexa Skills Kit API endpoints, and discuss best practices and tools for building and consuming API services.
