How I Used Alexa and Twilio to Wish My Dad Happy Birthday

My dad turned 68 this year. Instead of sending him a run-of-the-mill gift with a “love you” note, like we do every year, we decided to do something that would make him cherish and remember this day for a long time. Since he loves his Echo, we thought - “could we have Alexa make him feel special and loved by his family and friends?” Turns out, the answer is an overwhelming yes. In this session, I’ll walk you through how I used Amazon Alexa, Twilio and AWS to wish my dad happy birthday.
