The event will feature keynote announcements, training and certification opportunities, access to more than 2,500 technical sessions, a partner expo, after-hours events, and so much more.
Meet Us at the Alexa Booth
Join us at the Alexa re:Invent booth located at the entrance of the Main Expo (Hall B) from Monday, December 2 to Thursday, December 5. Check out our newest Echo devices and learn what you can build with Alexa to help serve your customers more naturally with voice anywhere they go. You can also take this opportunity to meet our team and ask any questions.
More Than 50 Alexa Sessions and Workshops
This year, there will be more than 50 Alexa sessions at re:Invent, including hands-on workshops, interactive chalk talks, and technical breakouts. Join sessions to dive deep into the technology across Alexa Skills Kit, Alexa Voice Service, and Alexa’s smart home capabilities, and learn how you can build compelling voice experiences. Session topics include designing great multimodal experiences, creating conversational voice interfaces, integrating in-skill purchasing, building Alexa-enabled devices for the connected world, and more. You’ll hear from senior leaders, technical evangelists, product team members, and engineers who will share the latest and greatest practices for building with voice.
What You’ll Learn
- Alexa, What Can I Do Now?
Every year, the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) grows in capabilities and features. In this state of the union, we discuss the latest trends in conversational artificial intelligence, highlight some of the most innovative skills, and provide an overview of everything that has been released in the past year for ASK.
- Improving Customer Retention for Your Alexa Skill
Retaining your customers is both an art and a science. In this session, you will discover the mechanisms you can use to keep your customers coming back for more. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, and discuss ideas among fellow skill developers.
- Building Robots That Respond to Voice
Learn how you can control robots with your voice through the Alexa Skills Kit. In this workshop, we will live-code with the Robot Operating System (ROS) and AWS RoboMaker to build an intelligent robotic application that responds to our voice commands and navigates autonomously in a simulated environment.
- How to Build Alexa Skills with AWS Database & Storage Services
Learn how to leverage AWS database and storage services effectively in your Alexa skill.
