Great video tutorial. I am thankful to the Dabble Lab team for creating some of the best Alexa developer tools/content.
Thanks so much for doing these. They're really great! I made a skill from the audio player template. I'm now trying to make another skill from the same template.
Thanks for updating this video. Really helpful to figure out where I was going wrong.
This is SO helpful! Thanks for putting this video together!
Thanks for the helpful video. Very useful !!
Wow Steve. You do have a great skill to explain that in an AWESOME way. Loved the video. Looking forward for more videos 🤓👍
Just followed your tutorial through and this is brilliant, hmmmm what can I build, though I need an Alexa, mine arrives tomorrow!
This was pretty interesting Steve. Those extra tips made it for me. I failed to properly configured it the first time. Thank you for posting great, updated content.
These have been helpful. Thank you.
Thank you for this tutorial, super useful.
Didn’t watched it so far (but will do it right now!) - the video we requested and you just made, thanks for having an open ear for the community!
This is awesome !! Its a lot better than the guides provided. Did it in one shot and had my skill running. Thanks A lot.
This is an excellent tutorial. Steve is totally supportive and knowledgeable.
This is really a good tutorial and I was able to follow it in-spite of the updated UI made on the developer console.
Smashing videos buddy. I'm thinking of jumping right in and trying to create a skill for a "subjective" question.
Hey! Beginner here! I followed the steps and got it working great!
Hi Steve! I have been following your videos on youtube and they have been of great help to get started with alexa skills. I am working on a personal project where I am trying to implement a basic question-answer alexa skill where alexa should respond with a corresponding audio to the question being asked.
Thank you for your videos, I think it's very well done.
First of all, love all these videos I think I have spent 3 hours watching all of them.
Hi Steve, thank you so much for all your videos, they are extremely helpful and are very well done!
testHey Steve! This has been a very helpful tutorial. Thanks for posting!imonial
Hi, Steve, I have been following your videos, they are great.
Thanks a ton so happy to find a newer video with all the recent changes.
Thanks for the video, it was so helpful to understand the process with the new UI.
Thank you for creating this video. I haven't programmed Alexa for 1-1/2 years and this got me up and running again with no frustration. Streaming would be impossible for me without your code and lesson. Thank you very much for this.
Great explanation, great video! Very clear, very thorough with an easy to understand example.
Excellent tutorial! I tried to follow Amazon's docs for creating a skill but they all seemed frustratingly out of date. This tutorial was really clear and helpful. Thank you so much!
I very much like your videos and templates. There are many moving parts between start and finish on skills, and your walkthrough makes it pretty simple to follow. I also especially appreciate your trying to keep current with amazon's changing sites, steps and requirements.
