Amazon Echo App: Next Meetup via Meetup.com

The App

Ask an Amazon Echo (or Dot or Touch, aka Alexa) when the next meetup is and receive the date, title, and description.

This was the result of a talk I gave for the PyStPete Python Meetup. Hack away!

Asking Questions

The supported pattern is something like:

<device greeting>, ask <app invocation> <phrase>

Where:

  • device greeting is most likely Alexa, but it could also be Amazon or Echo.
  • app invocation is configured in the Amazon/Alexa dev portal.

Supported App Invocations

when the next meetup is
when the next meeting is
when the next talk is
when the next event is
when is the next meetup
when is the next meeting
when is the next talk
when is the next event

Examples

Alexa, ask Py Saint Pete when the next meetup is.
