    The course provides comprehensive coverage of key Alexa skill development using the popular nodeJS development option using the lambda backend option. The source codes are available on Github and key areas of the code highlighted within the videos. The course would be improved by splitting each section into additional subsections as the sections are long and it can be difficult to revisit specific elements at a later date.

    The key takeaway from this course is that proper user interface design for voice matters. Making the conversation feel personalized, natural and context based is key to keeping users engaged. The course delivers on that front as I was able to upgrade by existing skills.

    Implementing entity resolution helped me save a lot of time in creating my Interactive Game Skill s Interaction Model. Moreover, implementing it allowed me to reduce backend inconsistencies in the code.

    This course is a must for anyone who is serious about creating useful alexa skills. I like the way the course is presented and taught. First, I was shown the problem existing with alexa skill, then I was shown the solution, later I was taught the importance of the said solution with examples and illustrations, and finally, I was taught how to code and implement the concept.

    I am building an adventure game skill, with multiple paths. I didn t know how to include a resume functionality so that the users can come back and never lose their progress. I used the state management concepts taught in this course to preserve the progress of the game.

    The course takes its time to explain various concepts with apt example interactions. This allowed me to realize that there are many conversational scenarios that I have not taken into consideration for my skill. Thus, I was able to implement account linking, Context switching and state management in my skill.

    I was looking to learn how to preserve user information across sessions in my skill. This is to remember user preferences in my cooking recipe skill so that I can give custom and personalized experience. I was able to successfully incorporate this in my skill after learning Persistent Attributes, DynamoDB, Context switching and account linking from this course.

    I created an alexa skill several months ago, so didn t remember the basics. Surprisingly this advanced course had a quick overview of the fundamentals of basic skill development, like developer console, frontend, backend and VUI design. This had me back on track very quickly. The rest of the content was amazing.

    Even though it s a large course, it was very visually pleasing with great illustrations and example conversation. I am sure that many skill developers will find explanations and implementation of dynamic entities, state management and dialog management useful for upgrading their skill.

    I learned how to access entity resolution for the back end and the front end. I also learned a great deal about conversation user interface design using dialog management, state management using DynamoDB, context switching, intent chaining, ASK CLI, Account linking, dynamic entities and in skill purchasing. All of these are essential for a great skill development.

    Helpful content but the strong Indian accent gives me a headache after listening for more than 30 minutes. Also the author doesn’t seem to have the slightest respect to copyright, all videos are full with very likely unlicensed, watermarked images from all over the web, an absolute no go.
