Technical Evangelist, Alexa Skills Kit
Andrea is a Technical Evangelist for Amazon Alexa. In this role, he is travelling the world to share stories, learnings and best practices for building voice-enabled experiences, aka Skills, with Alexa. Before that he worked on both sides of software development as a full stack developer and as a product manager.
When not prototyping new Alexa Skill ideas or championing the needs of developers, he enjoys composing music and working on random projects with NodeJS + TypeScript + Webpack + React + Redux.
For the latter, he hopes one day to spend the majority of his time coding and not fighting with the build process.

There are now thousands of skills available in the UK from brands like The Guardian, Just Eat, Jamie Oliver and Hive, as well as innovative designers and developers
