Have you published Alexa Skills before? 

If you have published Alexa Skills before, all you need to learn is Alexa Presentation Language, a new design language and tools that make it easy to create visually rich Alexa skills for tens of millions of Alexa devices with screens. For multimodal, voice-first experiences, you have to consider graphical user interface (GUI) in addition to voice user interface (VUI) during the voice design process. To help you understand and build in the best way possible, we’ve prepared a series of learning content including webinars and blog posts.
