In this course, participants examine the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Alexa Skills Kit, including the use of invocations, intents, utterances, and slots. Testing with Alexa Simulator and Echosim is also covered. Begin by creating a skill in Alexa Development Console and looking at the use of invocations with the Alexa skill. Then discover how built-in intents are used in Alexa Development Console. Next, create and use custom intents, utterances, and slots in Alexa Development Console. To review: an intent is a construct representing an action that fulfills a spoken request, utterances are related spoken phrases mapped to the intent, while slots are optional arguments also related to intent. You will learn how to build a Lambda function and integrate it with an Alexa skill, then test a skill by using Alexa Simulator and Echosim. You will configure a skill to use DynamoDB for persisting session data. Finally, create an Alexa skill that manages a multistage conversation. The concluding exercise directs you to create a skill by using the Skills Kit in the Alexa Development Console.
