Alexa Skill Building 101

On Saturday June 4th we bring you the first ever + Amazon Alexa workshop!

Liz Myers, who is a Developer Evangelist at Amazon, will be teaching Alexa Skill Building 101 starting at noon. In this talk, intended for software and hardware developers interested in voice control, home automation, and personal assistant technology, we will walk through the development of a new Alexa skill and incorporate it into a consumer-facing device.

The talk will be followed by lunch and an afternoon of hacking. Finish off the day with dinner and incredible prizes sponsored by Amazon.

Alexa is the speech and personal assistant technology behind Amazon Echo. Today you can use Alexa to listen to music, play games, check traffic and weather, control your household devices such as Philips Hue and Belkin WeMo, and lots more. Alexa offers a full-featured set of APIs and SDKs that you can use to teach her new skills and add her into devices and applications of your own.

Worried that your just a beginner and not much of a coder? Don t be! This Hackathon will be suitable for beginners and pros alike. We have examples and tutorials that will get you up to speed with creating your own amazing voice activated Alexa “Skills” for the Echo – come learn and make new nerdy coder friends! Any experience with JavasScript or Python will be a plus but we have a repository of examples you can simply modify to make your own publishable Alexa Skill. Drop in, bring your laptops, your friends, and plenty of time to hack some uber code and hear what Echo has to say.

MultiTech and Prototype to Production LoRa IoT Workshop
Notch8 (The Bindery Annex)

We invite developers and engineers to learn how to start the development of loT commercial solutions using pre-certified LoRaWAN hardware platforms and to quickly create new “connected prototypes” This workshop guides programmers and tech professionals on how to crowd source libraries for sensors and peripherals using a cloud based IDE. Users will learn how to move data from edge sensor/processor to cloud platform as a service using a cellular and Long Range RF LoRa Modules. Product Managers and Business Development Leaders are welcome - learn how to build successful business practices and how to avoid the critical pitfalls of loT development. Industry executives from MultiTech, ARM, Semtech, Senet, and STMicroelectronics will be on hand to share valuable insight on developing and managing solutions in th marketplace. What attendees will learn: • Rapid prototyping using a cloud based compiler • Cellular communication to add macro-network • Crowd sourcing libraries to add drivers from common sensors and peripherals • How to use an application enablement platform to collect and store IoT data, obtain insights from it, and securely publish the data • Best practices for “concept-to-commercial” development and launch of loT solutions Who should attend: • Programmers that are familiar with C++ want to make their devices ‘connected’ • Business Development Managers focusing on IoT, looking to shorten time-to-market • Product Managers and Engineers looking to shorten time-to-development for products and services Space is Limited. Reserve Your Seat Today.
