ALX201: How Capital One Built a Voice-Based Banking Skill for Amazon Echo
As we add thousands of skills to Alexa, our developers have uncovered some basic and more complex tips for building better skills. Whether you are new to Alexa skill development or if you have created skills that are live today, this session helps you understand how to create better voice experiences. Last year, Capital One joined Alexa on stage at re:Invent to talk about their experience building an Alexa skill. Hear from them one year later to learn from the challenges that they had to overcome and the results they are seeing from their skill. In this session, you will learn the importance of flexible invocations, better VUI design, how OAuth and account linking can add value to your skill, and about Capital One's experience building an Alexa skill.
ALX202: How Amazon is enabling the future of Automotive
The experience in the auto industry is changing. For both the driver and the car manufacturer, a whole new frontier is on the near horizon.

How do I stay safer and more aware in the ever increasing complexity of traffic, schedules, calls, messages and tweets? In this session we will discuss how the auto industry is facing new challenges and how the use of Amazon Alexa, IoT, Logistics services and the AWS Cloud is transforming the Mobility experience of the (very near) future.
ALX301: Alexa in the Enterprise: How JPL Leverages Alexa to Further Space Exploration with Internet of Things
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory designs and creates some of the most advanced space robotics ever imagined.
