Hacking with Amazon Alexa!
MLH LocalHost event: Hacking with Amazon Alexa is hosted by Women in Computer Science (WiCS) and the Association of Computing and Machinery (ACM). This workshop is designed for beginners interested in creating your first skill for Amazon Alexa, the voice service that powers the Amazon Echo.
The presenter for this workshop is Krista Shuckerow, current President of ACM and WiCS member. Krista is an undergraduate student at FIU, majoring in Statistics and Economics with a minor in Computer Science. Upon graduation in May 2018 she will join the Google team as an Engineering resident. We wanted Krista to host this workshop, not only because she’s such an inspiration to Women in Computer Science everywhere, but because she has been working with Amazon Alexa for the past 10 months. It’s no surprise she picked up the skill during a hackathon and has one published Alexa skill.
