In July we focused on the value side projects. Adam presented a talk where he demonstrated building custom applications on the Amazon Alexa smart home platform. Talking us through the process and some of the things learnt along the way.
The value of side projects
Side projects are important, you can exercise your own creativity and build all sorts of random things. They allow you to pick up new skills and expand your knowledge along the way. They can just be for fun, or they may even turn into commercial success stories, or sometimes fail… but ultimately they allow us to learn something new, and more importantly, you’re the boss! In this presentation I will go through the value of side projects in more detail, running through some success stories and also showing you a side project I’ve worked on using an Amazon Echo Dot.
