Check out the Convoworks presentation given to the WordPress NYC Meetup group

What better way to learn about a product than from its creator? This May I had the opportunity to present Convoworks to the WordPress NYC Meetup group and show how easy it is now to connect your website to Amazon Alexa.

In the presentation itself, I tried to cover some basics about smart speakers, how it all connects, how to create Alexa skills, how it works with other WP plugins, and what the future plans are.

I managed to cover just about everything, so if you’re interested in Convoworks, I highly recommend checking it out.
