We are immensely proud to team up with Amazon and hold one of David Low's masterclasses in building Amazon Alexa skills for this month's Linuxing in London! If you've ever been interested in developing an Alexa skill, learning about artificial intelligence, Amazon lambda and the coding required, then this masterclass could be for you. Don't miss it!
In this evening with David Low, Amazon's Alexa Principal Evangelist, he will show the steps of the process from getting started, to creating an Alexa skill, through to submitting to the store.
These skills can be published to the Alexa App Store and used by millions of devices powered by Alexa.
Already, you can ask Alexa to hail you an Uber cab or order your favourite pizza from Just Eat.
During the evening, David will talk about why Amazon believes that voice is the future of user experience and provide an overview of the Alexa Engine. David will also demonstrate how to develop custom skills for Amazon Echo with the Alexa Software Development Kit (SDK) and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

David Low created and now leads the Developer Advocacy program at Skyscanner, the world’s travel search engine.
