If so, you're in luck. Amazon is offering three free months of an Envato Tuts+ subscription to the first 500 readers who publish an Alexa skill between 31 March 2016 and 31 May 2016.
What Is an Alexa Skill?
If you're not familiar, an Alexa skill is an interaction that works with Amazon Echo. You can read more about Alexa skills and how to create them in our tutorial on How to Build an Amazon Echo Skill in Under an Hour.
How Does the Contest Work?
