What it does

How we built it

Challenges we ran into

Working with 3 different languages was difficult. Just trying to convert the google doc to a useable database in python was hard, but getting the hang of Alexa took the entire 24 hours.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting an actual skill to work with Alexa. Even though it's slightly handicapped by the modules I used to work with Alexa it still works.

What we learned

Started out rough in python with no experience in JSON or ever touch amazon web services or the Amazon Alexa. Now I have learned how painful it can be working with Alexa, trying to get here to communicate the way you want her to. However, I have learned a lot about Alexa and I am interested in finding better ways to improve what I have started.

What's next for Alexa secretary

More integration with the app and hopefully being able to send actually contacts to your phone
