Skill Testing Tool
a glimpse of my code
Ever wanted to send a message to your friend through Alexa? Ever wanted Alexa to make up a schedule for you? Ever wanted Alexa to note down your tasks that have a deadline?
What it does
Sends message to your friend without you touching your phone. Creates the most optimal schedule for you. Notes down all the tasks and deadlines you have.
Challenges I ran into
Preparing for this hackathon, I wanted to test out if I am able to create a working project from scratch while learning a new software. I was also determined to complete this hackathon without a team. I experienced a lot of stress, fustration, sleep derivation, and the sense of giving up. However, I pushed through and resulted in an Alexa skill that does a number of functionalities to improve quality of daily lives.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The main accomplishment I am most proud of is my capability of finishing an entire project on my own in less than 36 hours on my own while learning on the spot. A few other accomplishments are my deeper understanding of the several technologies and software's that I was previously not familiar with.
What I learned
What's next for Scheduler Pro
I have a whole lot of more ideas for Scheduler Pro
- Develop a better algorithm for making up schedules. (I want to look into research papers and have my algorithm based of a theory.
- Add better features to the schedule maker such as: Order the tasks that the user has given and output each tasks and the time that the user should do it in.
- Improve sample utterances
- Find an alternative way than Twilio for SMS messaging since Twilio costs money
