COMMENT

Welcome to issue #52. In the past 52 weeks of newsletters we've seen tremendous growth for Echo and Alexa. From 21 skills to over 3,000. From one device from Amazon to three and from no third party devices to perhaps a dozen. From just one or two home automation connections and integrations to hundreds. From being an afterthought to companies to a point where they make press releases about upcoming skills and integrations. From a few github repos of quality to dozens.

It's been nothing short of stellar, and I can't wait to see what the next year brings.

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.
