Hello folks, I have few ideas for Alexa programming and I am looking for advice. My goal is not simply a project for Hobby but I would like to commercialize some of these ideas and want to spend time in the right architecture/foundation etc. My background and questions are below. In case you are local in NYC / NJ area and would be open to a phone call/coffee would greatly appreciate your time.
My Background: - Used to be a Java programmer about 10 years back, since then moved to Project/Product roles. - Recently completed a basic Java/Android app. - Have a buddy to help in Python/Django based backend framework. Love Python myself. - I have reviewed few YouTube videos and udemy course on ASK.
My Questions: - with my Java/Python background will it be advisable to use Node.js for Alexa programming or start with what I know? The reason I ask that is most examples/tutorials i found are in Node.js? My own skill set is Java and little bit of Python. Is it worth it for me to learn Node in this case? If not which of the other two between Java and Python is better? - I dont have much background in Lambda. Should I consider using that service or a django/python backend with which I already have some experience? - Any other resources that you feel maybe useful.
I will greatly appreciate any advice.
