An Alexa skill that reads out a random motivational quote upon request.
This was the first ever Alexa skill I had created and was also the first time I wrote code in Node.js so to familiarize myself with both the platform and the language I decided to build this app. Although the quotes are hardcoded currently, I would like to look into parsing quotes online in the near future. An adventure for another day!
I am currently trying to integrate the skill to a DynamoDB database hosted on Amazon Web Services, which will allow for having a database of quotes to randomly pick from that can be updated every once in a while.
