We wanted to build something that we might actually use in our day to day lives.

What it does

It provides the user with a variety of options for interfacing with discord using their amazon echo

How we built it

We used Amazons alexa skills kit in conjunction with an AWS lambda function written in node.js that communicates with Discord in the back end using the discordie and discord.js api's

Challenges we ran into

no support for alexa communication with discord whatsoever. All interfacing had to be done from scratch

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting alexa to read messages from the discord was exceptionally difficult, so were very happy we got any interaction of that sort working

What we learned

persistence is key

What's next for EchoMyDiscord
