Amazon has a sure winner with its Alexa-enabled devices. Many have taken the plunge and invested in the Alexa ecosystem though the addition of smart home devices, but also as a daily assistant for news, weather, and a myriad of other things.

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve released our first Alexa skill for IT/Dev Connections 2017. Our first skill is a Flash Briefing skill. Once enabled, you can stay up-to-date with what’s going on for IT/Dev Connections 2017 daily as part of your morning news catchup. We’ll be providing all sorts of news including what’s going on behind-the-scenes, discount codes, schedule and speaker updates, and more.
