In this lab, we will learn how to use ASK to create a new skill from templates. We will learn how to set up our lab environment for Alexa skill building, and then we will deploy a simple skill and test it. By the end of the lab, you will have deployed your first Alexa skill and proven it functions successfully. Objectives for this lab include learning to initialize the ask-cli, deploying a templated skill and making a slight modification to it, and deploying the skill and testing it works as expected. Note: You must have your own Amazon Developer account, which you can sign up for if you do not already have one.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
