Members: Christopher Hahn

Inspiration

Scrolling back in group chats to find the times my group members are available is time consuming. I needed an easy and compact way to interact with my team's schedules.

What it does

Alexa "can" record what times each of your team members can meet and compares them to acquire which are the times everyone is available. However, due to insufficient tutorials & examples the project back-end was unable to be completed.

How I built it

I utilized Amazons Alexa Skill building utilities.

Challenges I ran into

I had no prior experience to the syntax and language and amazon Alexa. Additionally, all the tutorials seemed to be outdated, especially the part regarding saving user data thus crippling my project from the start.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Learning how to make an Alexa skill that responds to replies and can repeat information back to you.

What I learned

I learned how to make Alexa temporarily remember what key information has been told to it.

What's next for Team Schedule

I want to have the app actually work sometime in the future.
