I’ve played around with creating Alexa skills before……my most useful was a skill that told me when my rubbish (garbage) 🗑️ was next going to be collected and which colour bin I needed to put out, a real lifesaver!
I decided to have a go at creating an Alexa skill that leveraged the code I’d written to check my bank balance and retrieve my most recent transaction. It was a success and here it is in action!
Rather than write a step-by-step blog post that describes how to do it, I thought I’d put together a walkthrough video, here it is in all its glory.
The AWS Lambda function used by the Alexa Skill (that I demo’d in the video) can be found on GitHub.
