COMMENT

Welcome to issue #49. While innovation doesn't really take a summer vacation, I do think we'll see some remarkable progress in the voice space this fall. The growth of the market, and notably the Echo/Alexa success, is going to pull in many more companies and independent developers. Opportunity does that. There will be a brisk business in skill development and I'm really excited for this in particular. We need more great skills to reach the potential of impact that exists here.

Thanks for reading and letting others know about us - that helps! If you find or create any great resources for ASK/AVS Developers, drop me a note.
