On May 2, 2019, from 9am-1pm PT, Amazon is hosting a free online conference called Alexa Live, Amazon’s first online-only conference for developers who want to explore what’s possible with voice.
Amazon says there’s content for novice developers looking to get started with voice. There’s also content for professional developers looking to enhance their Alexa skills and scale the impact of voice through monetization. Registrations are done here.
Attendees will hear from the Alexa voice design education team, solution architects, and members of the developer community. The conference will dive deep into four tracks covering core skill-building areas, including:
- Design: Learn how to create focused, natural, and engaging Alexa skills. Sessions will cover building for voice vs. the screen, voice games, personalization, and writing engaging dialogs.
- Tools: Explore the best tools to help you build, deploy, edit, and test Alexa skills. Sessions will cover how to get the most out of the Alexa Developer Console, testing best practices, and more.
- Monetization: Discover how to make money with your Alexa skills and establish a voice business. Sessions will cover technical implementation for in-skill purchasing and offer code deep dives to walk you through how you monetize your skill.
- Multimodal: Learn how to design visually rich voice-first experiences for Alexa-enabled devices with screens. Sessions will show you how to use the Alexa Presentation Language and showcase real-world examples of engaging multimodal skills.
