Description

In this course you will learn how to use Alexa to build clever voice assistants.

If you've taken any of my courses, you are familiar with my agile approach to teaching, I teach theory through practice, instead of the common "practice after theory" approach that bores most students to death and has them drop out of the course before they learn anything meaningful. This is a bite sized course that will give you all the tools you need to progress.

This course is perfect for curious developers and or entrepreneurs who want to give life to their business or simply improve their customer service agility.

You will not require an Alexa device although it is cool to see your work in one, and you will not require any knowledge of computer programming although prior knowledge of JavaScript is helpful.

Let's get started!

Who this course is for:
  • Individuals who are curious about data science
  • Individuals wanting to shift careers
  • Individuals interested in natural language processing
  • Entrepreneurs and Business Owners looking at improving their customer service
  • Individuals who want to developer their own personal assistant
  • Curious Individuals in general
