Inspiration

Did not want to calculate the duration between two times manually.

What it does

It simply calculates the duration between two times.

How I built it

I already had some experience writing Alexa Skills in Python, so I used it again for this simple one. Parts and experiences from previous Skills could be used.

Challenges I ran into

The main challenge was to find the correct function for time calculation. After that it was easy. Another challenge when getting this ready for submission was multi-language support. I solved it now with nested dictionaries in python. Probably not the best way, but it was fast to accomplish.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

None

What I learned

A few things about python

What's next for Time calculation for Alexa

Maybe adding some more utterances and making everyday usage more convenient
