Check out this talk on creating something fun on Amazon Echo using Ruby by Cookpad's Miles Woodroffe!
Voice interfaces open up so many interesting possibilities and in this talk Miles'll show you how to very quickly build and deploy a useful "skill" with Ruby, and at the same time, make sure you hopefully don't burn the dinner.
