Amazon’s Alexa developer education/evangelism teams have been traveling the world this year holding “Alexa Dev Days” to explain the fundamental concepts of how Alexa development works, and to help developers get their feet wet making Alexa skills.
In Q4 2018, Alexa Dev Days will be held in 6 cities around the world:
- October 4, 2018: Montreal, Canada
- October 12-13, 2018: Tokyo, Japan
- November 7-8, 2018: Mexico City, Mexico
- November 20, 2018: Paris, France
- December 5, 2018: Milan, Italy
- December 11, 2018: Madrid, Spain
Alexa Dev Days are a good opportunity for developers to meet other developers in their area interested in building voice apps. The Alexa Skills Kit is a toolkit for starting with Alexa development. Educational resources from Amazon are also online here.
Amazon says that there are over 20,000 Alexa-enabled devices on the market today.
