Main inspiration is my girlfriend: she doesn't like Alexa.. I think she is a little bit jealous :D so I tried to convince her, I made a skill a woman would like to use. I interviewed her looking for something she could use and their vanity case is something she need to prepare and where Alexa can help.

What it does

The skill help a woman to prepare their vanity bag asking the things a woman need to put into the bag and thanks to APL showing all the stuff she inserted.

How I built it

I used javascript/nodejs, visualstudio code, lambda and simulator.

Challenges I ran into

Unfortunately, I don't have a real device to test it, I used the simulator on alexa ask console. Actually I don't know if some problem are real on the device (I tried to insert executecommands without success.. I didn't find any change.. on scrollToIndex for example.. so I removed them).

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

My girlfriend really like the skill and the idea. She said it will use it when we will get an echo spot.

What I learned

How to use the new APL.

What's next for La borsa di venere

Make it available in other languages (english UK, english US at least) and improve the actual skill behaviour (more apl documents).
