Today, we are thrilled to announce the Amazon Alexa Twitch channel for Alexa skill builders. Every week the Alexa team streams unique content on Twitch to share voice design best practices, build skills from start to finish, and interact with the skill-building community.
What You’ll Learn
It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned skill builder–our Twitch channel offers skill-building education for everyone. Our weekly shows, like the “Joy of Voice,” “C+C Hacking Factory,” and “Building College Coach,” teach you how to build skills step-by-step. The show hosts bring their own voice design approach as they talk about different aspects of skill building.
We also host shows that dive into specific Alexa skill-building features, voice design ideas, or recent launches. We cover these topics conceptually and share code samples to bring the concepts to life. Recent shows have covered:
- Making Money with Alexa Skills
- Getting Started with the New Alexa SDK for Java & Node.js
- How Building for Voice Differs from Building for a Screen
Our goal is to teach and help you build Alexa skills, but we like to keep it fun. Expect some jokes and the occasional musical interlude throughout each episode to keep you entertained.

Check out our events calendar for a full list of what’s coming up on Twitch, including:
