How To Build an Alexa Skill with User Profiles, without writing code.
In this web series, we'll learn how to create an Alexa Skill that has a "user registration" module without being a software developer!
Jason from SexyHackers.com is going to show you how to create an Alexa Skill that has a "user registration" module without being a software developer! You'll learn step by step how to make your very first Alexa Voice Skill using GetStoryline.com then extend the functionality of it using Zapier.com, AirTable.com, and Twillio.com to save information collected, then reuse that profile information the next time the skill launches.
For example, if you built an Amazon Alexa Skill using GetStoryline.com, that tells people where the pizza shops are in the area. Rather than always asking for their zip code when they launch your skill, you'll be able to automatically know their zip code when the skill starts and lookup nearby shops without having to prompt the user to tell you their zip code a second time!
