We wanted to make an app for alexa that would tell you whether or not you could recycle something. However, this already existed, so we gave alexa a bit of attitude.
What it does
Assists user in what can or cannot recycled based off the troy area.
How we built it
We used they alexa development tool kit and aws lambda functions.
Challenges we ran into
None of us had created an alexa app before, we were having difficulties to alexa, and we had initial problems with the set up.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a working project that serves as a baseline product.
What we learned
We learned how to create custom skills for alexa and how trouble shoot with the alexa developer tool kit.
What's next for Trashy Alexa
It is currently just for Troy, but we would like to expand it to include more areas.
