Thanks for hunting @andrey_esaulov, its pretty awesome to see products like this that make it possible for anyone to build for AI assistants. I think it would be more inclusive if the homepage copy said "For the best Alexa Skills and Google Assistant Actions ever made by people" as opposed to "men". Its not only men who are making stuff in this space.

@abadesi You are absolutely right! Changed that! Thank you!

@abadesi that's true. I make skills for Alexa all the time, and get this, I'm over 50. Making my Google asst app at this moment.

wow, does it mean my voice could be a trigger for an IFTTT scenario?

@graeme_fulton Of course! Communicating with your recipe is easy. You simply need send a special GET request to the following URL. You do this in BotTalk by using getUrl action: actions: - getUrl: https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/{event}/with/key/{secret_key}

@andrey_esaulov 👀the possibilities 😃

Deployed both a Dog Facts and Coin Cap demo, but in both cases getting a "There was a problem with the requested skill's response" in Amazon's testing console. Any thoughts @andrey_esaulov? Note that I'm totally new to this so it could be pilot error on my part, and the fact that I got this far in about 30 seconds is really promising.

@toddlevy Hey! Thanks for trying out BotTalk! No, it was an error on our side. Well, featuring on Product Hunt can do that to you sometimes :) But we scaled up our servers, now it should be working flawlessly!

@andrey_esaulov Working like a champ. Thank you for your quick reply. Already pitching ideas to clients.

@toddlevy tell us how it goes :) Really looking forward to some great use cases. We‘ve been using BotTalk for our own consulting purposes - and that’s how the product came to be. Great to see it‘s useful for the community as well.

This is awesome 🙌 I’m a big fan of Gary Vaynerchuk and he’s all about voice and how it’s the next big thing. I’ve been thinking of skills I’d like to create that would go with my biz. I’m excited I can create them myself with your product. I will be testing it out for sure😊

@donny_harding Gary has the point. I love his predictions - he was one of the inspirations while we were creating this product. His ideas and motivations helped us stay the longest hours :)
