Amazon Alexa Skill Development Workshop
  • Baylis Suite, Plymouth Science Park, 1 Davy Road, Plymouth PL6 8BX

Save event

Alexa, the voice service behind the Amazon Echo, is changing how we interact with the world and is enabling developers and technologists to build new voice applications or Alexa skills to reach and engage customers.

Delivered by Amazon UK (AWS), attendees at this free workshop will receive training on how to build and publish skills that make Alexa smarter and make everyday tasks faster, easier, and more delightful for customers. We will also explore AWS developer tools to implement and automate the build and deployment of an Alexa skill to streamline delivery of code and interaction model changes into the production environment.


  • Please bring a fully charged laptop to the event. 
  • You will also need to create an Amazon Developer account here and an AWS account here prior to arrival.
