COMMENT

Welcome to Issue #29. Amazon gave us a new set of capabilities this week. Thank you! The news about Alexa and its impact continues to increase. It must be very exciting times for the Alexa team. I can say that everything related to Alexa that I'm involved in is growing at an increasing rate.

Drop me a note if you find or create any great resources for ASK/AVS Developers.
