Getting started with Alexa skill (list of functions)

I'm trying to get started with making an Alexa skill. I only find one youtube video example and not much other examples. I would also like to go further than the basic. Is there a list of functions that can be called? Am I supposed to download the SDK? And where is that. Everything seems to be so disorganized. Can someone please help me get started? I know how Alexa works, but I need more information than build a skill.
