Problem in uploading code to AWS Lambda

Is anyone else experiencing a problem when uploading code to AWS Lambda this morning? For example, I uploaded some of the sample code (the one for 'space geek') from the ASK and I get the following response: { "errorMessage": "Cannot read property 'application' of undefined", "errorType": "TypeError", "stackTrace": [ "AlexaSkill.execute (/var/task/AlexaSkill.js:72:62)", "exports.handler (/var/task/index.js:105:15)" ] } I see the same error currently when I upload my own code.

To clarify, the error message I'm seeing appears AWS > Lambda > Functions > Skill window, under the "Execution Result (Failed) Section". When I uploaded the code for 'space geek', I see the following log output: "START RequestId: dda6ad01-70f3-11e5-b7ae-57a9e86e4f13 Version: $LATEST 2015-10-12T15:14:00.559Z dda6ad01-70f3-11e5-b7ae-57a9e86e4f13 Unexpected exception TypeError: Cannot read property 'application' of undefined 2015-10-12T15:14:00.619Z dda6ad01-70f3-11e5-b7ae-57a9e86e4f13 {"errorMessage":"Cannot read property 'application' of undefined","errorType":"TypeError","stackTrace":["AlexaSkill.execute (/var/task/AlexaSkill.js:72:62)","exports.handler (/var/task/index.js:105:15)"]} END RequestId: dda6ad01-70f3-11e5-b7ae-57a9e86e4f13 REPORT RequestId: dda6ad01-70f3-11e5-b7ae-57a9e86e4f13

Hi, We were able to replicate this issue by removing the 'application' value from the JSON. Can you please make sure all your intents have 'application' set correctly? For reference, you can go to your lambda function, click on Actions -> Configure Sample Event, and From the "Sample event template" dropdown, select an existing template, for example: Alexa Start Session.
