Early in the hackathon there were a bunch of @channel notifications we missed out on because we were just being too lazy to check the app

What it does: with a command alexa pulls from slack on a single channel a message then plays the message back though the speaker on the echo

How we built it: using a raspberry pie with an amazon echo linking them together with aws and python code to make a skill

Challenges we ran into : learning higher level python than what i was taught, learning alexia's api and how to write skllls which was a big roadblock

Accomplishments that I'm proud of : getting the skills to work

What I learned: more about python how to do implementation with alexa skills

What's next for Alexa read my slack i have no clue for this specific application after the hackathon but will use skills leaned to make more alexia skills
