Build An Alexa Fact Skill

This Alexa sample skill is a template for a basic fact skill.

Skill Architecture

Each skill consists of two basic parts, a front end and a back end. The front end is the voice interface, or VUI. The voice interface is configured through the voice interaction model. The back end is where the logic of your skill resides.

There are a number of different ways for you to setup your skill, depending on your experience and what tools you have available.
