Refugee from Insteon home automation. Is this the best forum for that?

I have three homes with extensive home automation that uses mostly Insteon and UDI products. Been doing this since 2005, with X10 before that. Now that Insteon is essentially out of business, I'm transitioning my automation activities over to the Alexa app and Alexa-enabled devices. I'm hardly an amazon developer, per se, just a hobbiest interesting in finding the right forum so I can interact with people like myself. I also have substantial experience building projects with Arduino/ESP32 microcontrollers, some of which I've programmed to have Alexa commanding capabilities. So, is this the best forum for me, or can anyone suggest a better alternative?

If you want to try ACK, I would recommend going through our Getting Started guide and create a prototype by adding functionality. https://developer.amazon.com/en-US/alexa/devices/connected-devices/development-resources/alexa-connect-kit#next-step-start-prototyping-with-ack
