Today, I was lucky to attend an Alexa Dev Day at an amazing venue with fantastic food.

However, the value of the workshop for me was very low. Developing skills for Alexa requires a very technical (and very frustrating) setup. Overall, I have a feeling that this product was built by developers, and to be fair, could be FOR developers only. My basic programming skills didn’t help.

On the other hand, I quickly tried creating a similar “skill” for Google Home Assistant and it was so much easier and user-friendly. Kudos to Google.
