Course Overview

Voice is a simple and frictionless way to interact with technology. It has changed how we interact with our mobile phones, televisions, and homes. Now, it’s changing how you interact with your CI/CD pipelines.

Ever dreamt of kicking off a Jenkins pipeline using just your voice and watching the status update in real-time? Dream no more. In this new course, you will build your own enterprise “DevOps Pal” and leverage Alexa for Business to publish a private skill to your organization.

You’ll get hands-on experience with the Alexa Voice Service, Alexa Skills Kit, Alexa Developer Portal, AWS Lambda, AWS CLI, AWS ElasticBeanstalk — plus Jenkins, Maven, and a whole lot more.

The course will be shipped soon: add your name to the waitlist and we’ll let you know when it is available to you using your active Cloud Academy subscription.
