About This Class

dc6cb81a

it's near the end of January!

wanted to push this out because I just got my amazon echo dot and I'm pumped about what is possible with this amazing little piece of hardware! :)

with my Christmas/birthday funds I managed to pick one up and I've got a clear plan of how I'm going to use it, I've found some great sites that allow me to track my interactions with the 'skills' - the amazon version of an app store and we are in the early adopter phase so it's perfect timing!

will you use voice devices this year?

in this course we discuss. . .

  • just what is Alexa from amazon? do you need one? what can it do? bonus, unboxing setup!
  • behind the scenes of how amazon Alexa works and why you need their hardware.
  • awesome existing add-on software you can get today for your Alexa powered device
  • developing your own software and programs for the Alexa, we look at what we need
  • building your own Alexa enabled raspberry pi 3 with walk-through instructions and links
  • the future of dedicated hardware for voice comms, who will win or is it a passing fad?

please watch to the end, if your not premium please go premium, it's only 99 cents for three months access, that's a crazy price! - get it now, get updates on every new course that i drop! :)
