Inspiration

I wanted to build an exciting factoid experience for users that can offer something for everyone who wishes to expand their knowledge on the holiday of Halloween. Through a trivia experience, I sought to build an application that allows users to learn more about Halloween facts and customs across the globe. With that goal in mind, I set out to educate users, offering them an intellectually fulfilling experience that will allow them to reflect on new insights and facts.

What it does

This skill serves as a enjoyable way to learn more about the origins of everyone's favorite fall holiday besides Thanksgiving. In perusing the facts of Halloween, one will come to know the true meaning of the holiday and get a sense of its interesting history and meanings. To get started, just say that you want a Halloween fact. The facts will keep on rolling in after that.

How we built it

The core frameworks used by the application were those associated with Amazon Alexa, with support from AWS services like Lambda to store all the information pertaining to different factoids. The trivia components of the application were rendered within the Alexa framework using JavaScript elements.
