Issues with Modifying Space Geek Sample App - Can you look at my code?
Hello I just began to play around with the Alexa Skills samples that are available. I have found that if I publish the samples as is the App launches on Echo. If I change the names and utterances to something other then what is listed the App will not launch. I get the following response from Echo "there was a problem with the requested skills response." Can you look at my code and comment? Thank you! /** Copyright 2014-2015

Before I take a look at your code, I'll give a few suggestions on testing for Alexa skills hosted in Lambda. The general idea with the Lambda/ASK testing process is to take one step farther removed from the original code every time you deem your test successful. In order, it will typically look like this: 1. Test your code using the built-in Lambda tester 2. Test your code using the service simulator 3. Test your code on an Echo or other Alexa device Since each of these steps gets gradually more restrictive, doing it in that order will make it most likely that you will catch errors early. If you are getting an error when testing directly from Lambda, you will almost certainly get errors when attempting to test on an Echo or using the Service simulator. Using Lambda testing and the service simulator also allow you to remove certain testing variables from the equation and simply test the code, such as voice recognition and construction of the intent. Which step is your code failing on, and what, if any, error messages do you receive when trying to run it? Thanks, Nick
