This quest is designed to teach you how to apply AWS Identity and Access Management, in concert with several other AWS Services, to address real-world application and service security management scenarios.
In this Quest, you will learn how to create Alexa skills that respond to voice commands and which can be used on the Amazon Echo, Dot, and Tap devices. You will create back-end functions in AWS Lambda, and then connect them with voice response logic using the Alexa Skills Kit. You will use both the AWS Console and the Amazon Developer Portal in these labs, the latter requiring you to have or create a no-cost, no-credit-card-required account. No hardware device is required for any lab; an Alexa voice response simulation system is provided in the Amazon Developer Portal. Templates used in these labs can be adapted and extended to create your own Alexa skills and offer them to the worldwide Alexa user community.
In this Quest, you will learn how to write functions with the AWS Lambda Service that respond to events and integrate other AWS Services. You will create applications that write records to Amazon DynamoDB, send messages with Amazon SNS, and monitor events in Amazon CloudWatch and external services. You will even write a back-end function in Lambda for creating a voice-response app for Alexa and the Amazon Echo.
In this Quest, you will delve deeper into the uses and capabilities of Amazon Redshift. You will use a remote SQL client to create and configure tables, and gain practice loading large data sets into Redshift. You will explore the effects of schema variations and compression. You will explore visualization of Redshift data, and connect Redshift with Amazon Machine Learning to create a predictive data model.
