Alexa, who you gonna code?

do you or someone you know own an Alexa? for anyone who might be living under a rock, it’s that wonderful invention that tells you what the weather is or how many calories are in a chicken wing. there have even been cases of individuals getting creative with their Alexas, such as this guy and also this Hamlet-inspired contraption. now…what if you could design your own voice app to interact with Alexa? well, you can thanks to Codecademy, who have partnered with Amazon to teach new and experienced coders how to build their own Alexa skills. Codecademy is already known for its free training in languages such as Python, JavaScript, and Ruby but also offers instructions on how to Make A Website and how to incorporate Responsive Design into said website. not only is the course free, but you don’t have to actually own an Alexa to participate. so go ahead, build you own voice app and ask Alexa all the crazy questions you want!
