Inspiration

Being fond of Formula 1 for a long time, I thought it was a good idea if I could make a conversational skill with Alexa skills kit which would provide me the event details whenever I want.

What it does

It tells me where and when is the next race according to the current date(Dynamic). It tells me which races are left and when are they scheduled(Dynamic). Also, it gives me the whole calendar of races for 2020 season(Static).

How I built it

I built it using Python and from a scratch skill template. I built the intents myself and wrote the logic for dynamic content and got the data myself.

Challenges I ran into

The challenge I ran into was that it was my first time making a proper skill and I had to learn by myself how to use everything. Also, I had to decide the logic for the dynamic content.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I am proud that in the first time, I could make such a skill and got it published

What I learned

I learned about intents, making it such as conversation, programming for dynamic content, and how to handle requests and outputs to make it more natural.

What's next for Formula 1 Calendar

The next update will be support for Hindi Language and also other things like wins and news.
