DevOps Your Amazon Skills
Since 2011 voice assistants have been entering our lives little by little. It wasn't until 2014 that Amazon created the Echo devices with its built-in assistant, Alexa. In 2018 they give us the opportunity for anyone to add functionality through skills, it means to be able to create voice based applications for the first time. Developing an Alexa skill can be a lot of fun, but nobody likes to find negative comments and reviews in order to begin to identify and correct bugs. Skills developers use tests and automation to minimize these risks. In this talk, I will talk about how to test your Alexa skill thanks to the Alexa Skill Kit and its API. At the same time, I will explain how to automate the daily workflow of a skill, from commit to deployment using Open Source tools such as GitHub Actions, Codecov, Bespoken among others. This talk will help people learn about the tools that are available to guarantee the quality of an Alexa skill. So they can get better products and know that they are not alone during the development process.
