Call an AWS Serverless Service from an Alexa Skill

This is a basic AWS serverless service example. It uses Lambda, APIG, and S3 to create a fact-vending service. In step 3, you will create an Alexa-Hosted Fact skill and call your REST service from there. Going through this tutorial should be within the free tier limits of these services. You can use this example as a starting point for other serverless services and for calling REST APIs from an Alexa skill.
