About The Course

Want to learn how to build an Alexa Skill? In this course you will get hands-on experience using the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK), learn to create an engaging voice user interface (VUI), and build a custom Alexa Skill from scratch.

After completing this course, you will be ready to create Alexa Skills that people will love on the tens of millions of Alexa enabled devices.

This course is largely project-based and kept up to date with the latest features and releases of Amazon Alexa. Whether you're an absolute beginner, intermediate developer, or an experienced Alexa Developer, this is the only course you will ever need.

You will only need a web browser to get started but for the more advanced levels, you will also need to have a basic understanding of the terminal and Javascript.

In this course, you'll learn:

  • How an Alexa Skill works.
  • How to build your own Alexa Skill.
  • Best practices of designing Alexa Skills.
  • Advanced topics such as personalization, multimodal design, and much more!

We know you're busy, so each level is broken down into bite-sized lessons that can be viewed anytime on our website or mobile app.

If you’re new to skill building, we recommend starting from the introduction (Part 1). If you already know the basics and want to dive into more advanced topics, feel free to skip ahead and choose one of the more specific lessons.
