Inspiration

Some people love to take long showers and can unknowingly spend an hour showering each time.

However, there are also people who prefer taking very short showers. Which one are you?

Regardless of which category you fall under, let Alexa help you be a better human and conserve water by tracking how long you take to shower.

Start a simple timer every time you want to shower and try to beat your personal record.

Let Alexa help you make a conscious effort to take shorter showers.

Take shorter showers, save the earth, and feel good while doing it!

What it does

Allow you to track how long your showers are taking in an effort to reduce water consumption and increase water conservation.

How I built it

Typescript, AWS Lambda, Azure Tables, Twitter, etc.

Challenges I ran into

Account Linking with Twitter proved to be more challenging than anticipated. VideoApp Directives don't seem to behave exactly as documented.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Building a fun, simple, skill that could really integrate in many people's lives and not only help them save but also be good for the earth.

What I learned

  • Account Linking
  • Display Directives (Multi Modal)
  • Video App
  • CanFullFillIntent
