Contests and Rewards
Amazon is offering a free Alexa Dev t-shirt to developers who publish a skill between May 1-31. A new t-shirt design features a badge to recognize you for publishing one of the first 1,000 Alexa skills. A number that will be passed in the next few weeks I think. Details on this offer here.
