From the day to day, why do we look at the weather? It's to decide what to wear. So how about we just ask the Alexa what to wear.

What it does

It keeps track of what is in your closet. You can associate each item to a weather condition. When it is that weather condition, it knows what to suggest to you.

How we built it

Node.JS, TribalScale Alexa Starter Kit, Firebase, Illustrator, Photoshop, Amazon Lambda

Challenges we ran into

Growing pains and concurrency issues with using Lambda for the first time.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The structure of the code is very easy to expand on.

What we learned

How to do asynchronous calls in Lambda. How to JavaScript. How to setup Node server. Voice User Interface. How to use Git. Designing for Alexa. Back end stuff. Integration Firebase with Express JS.

What's next for Coat Check
