Alexa Champion | AWS Alexa Exam Contributor | Alexa Judge
Hello! My name is Liam Sorta, and I love Alexa Development.
In the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of taking part in over 30 hackathons (and organising my own!), where I won awards from some of the biggest names in tech, Microsoft, Riot Games, GitHub and Adobe being just a few of them. Software engineering is a huge part of my life, but education has always been my biggest passion.
But what do I know about Alexa? I was honoured to be selected as an Amazon Alexa Champion, a group of Alexa developers/educators recognised by Amazon as having made significant contributions to the voice industry. I was also invited to join Amazon at their offices to help with the creation of the AWS Alexa Exam! And easily one of my most enjoyable experiences was being asked to judge for the Alexa Skills Competition for Games!
Having given talks/workshops to thousands of people from the US to Sweden, I’ve had the opportunity to teach people of all ages and backgrounds. If you are reading this right now, you’re already at a stage where you’re ready to learn, and I want to help you take that step!
By the way, if you want to check out something cool, here’s an R&D project I worked on to put Alexa in Virtual Reality!
