Sometimes, you sit at home and think about whether it would be possible to automate your tasks with voice instructions. For example, do I receive emails from person A, or can you summarize my day? How about doing this without opening the laptop? Thanks to Alexa you can use your voice and send commands to other applications to make it happen. The best thing is you can do this with Python!

In this session, we will teach you about the main components of Alexa, how to get started with the Developer console, and how to customize Alexa using our favorite language, Python in a serverless way. We will also demonstrate how to incorporate Alexa into your daily developer life, and you might find that, after this talk, you won't even need your keyboard — you'll just need your voice for automation.

Join us, if you are curious about constructing small and hilarious applications to break the monotony of your routine with Alexa. By the end of this session, you will learn how to do some development tricks with Alexa and how to grant your little friend Alexa's new personalized skills using Python.
