The system is architected for and runs entirely on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, leveraging a range of cloud services:
- Lambda: powering the Alexa skill code and webapp API
- DynamoDB: persistence of Alexa session data
- S3: user data storage and webapp hosting
- API Gateway: http endpoints for invocation of lambda functions
- Cloudfront: webapp distribution
- Cloudwatch: logging, metrics and alarms
- SNS: instant Slack notification of Cloudwatch alarms
- IAM: user access control
- ACM: SSL certificate management
The core logic of the Alexa Skill is derived from the Alexa Trivia Sample. Question data is loaded dynamically from JSON files stored on S3.Any questions?
