Alexa Skills Development Workshop
Amazon Echo is one of the hottest pieces of technology hardware on the market right now. According to recent estimates, Amazon has sold more than 4 million Echos since it launched in late 2014. In that time, Alexa, Echo’s artificial personality that you give commands to, has only gotten smarter. According to Amazon as of late July, Alexa had more than 1000 skills. By comparison, Alexa had a mere 14 skills last September.
We at Goldenmace realize the potential of “Voice” as a primary means of communication with the digital world. We are actively involved in the development of the “Voice powered” products and services. Our voice skills are recognized and awarded by industry giants like Amazon and Google.
To promote Voice technology, we had hosted “Alexa Skills Development for Beginners” workshop at GIDC college and S S Agrawal college in Gujarat on 30th August and 6th of September. A combined total of 115+ students packed the room for the workshop lead by our specialist speakers Hindustani, Bhumin and Rakesh.
A full day workshop was split into two sessions viz. Speaker Session, and Hands-on session. Nearly hundred demo skills were created during the hands-on session.
But it wasn’t just all work and no play. Students actively participated during the session. The huge number of questions from student community was indeed impressive and subtly conveyed that the young minds are open for discussions with an honest frankness.
Followed by hands-on session there was a contest announcement where students were asked to submit their ideas. The best idea will be rewarded by Goldenmace.
All in all, the workshop went off very well and was well appreciated by one and all. The success of “Alexa Skills Development” workshop by Goldenmace IT Solutions invites more related sessions in upcoming times. Stay Tuned 🙂
