Alexa skill development has become an issue in the market for developers. The demand for developers having Alexa Skills is increasing in the market. To encourage the designers Amazon is making an attempt to attract developers towards Alexa Skills Kit SDK which is software with Node.js.

Building with Alexa might be a little challenging. To test the Alexa Skills, you must have Lambda function that is connected to a development Alexa Skill to test the design. While you update the code you also should update the Lambda function and test the skill. The skill uses your real voice but updating the code can be a little time consuming.
The developers can also use Alexa-app framework which not associated with Amazon. A lot of developers have loved the app and are taking all the benefits from it. Using the app increases your work rate and the app is getting update by the team of developers.
Alexa has Alexa Skills KIT SDK and Alexa –app for the developers. Amazonis trying to install few new options on Alexa which are yet to be tested and approved by the users.
The Alexa has Bespoken tool which provide the developers the option to choose from many developing languages. This work frame looks better for most of the developers using different programming language.
