[Yekaterinburg, Announcement] Alice Visiting Kontur - Hackathon to create skills for voice assistants

    Voice assistants penetrated our devices. We learned to live together: we recognize the weather, set the alarm and sometimes we are surprised at their helplessness. But we can teach helpers new tricks.

    Therefore, developers from Contour and Yandex are conducting a hackathon to create skills for voice assistants. We will learn how to design a convenient skill, let's look at the Yandex.Dialog API , learn about the experience of other developers, and create our own skills.

    Hackathon will be held in Yekaterinburg on Saturday, July 28, in the office of the contour development. Let's start at 10:00, finish at 18:00. There will be two reports, six working hours in teams and a presentation of the results.

    We invite developers, designers, product managers and others who want to make a voice assistant skill to participate. Do not forget the laptop if you are going to program.

    Registration for hakaton.
