Calendar + Contacts + Free/Busy

Hi folks, our FreeBusy Alexa Skill v1 is now ready and you can see a demo at https://youtu.be/GNZPKB-HQwU Above and beyond what the 1st party calendar app can do, with FreeBusy Alexa Skill you can: - connect any kind of calendar + contacts (Google, iCloud, Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Yahoo, Zimbra, GoDaddy, and others) - create appointments with conflict detection (Alexa will tell you if you have a conflict at that time) - check if you or a contact is free or busy at a certain time - ask about a variety of information about a contact (phone number, etc.) We documented how we solved some of the challenges encountered and the patterns we created: https://freebusy.io/blog/building-conversational-alexa-apps-for-amazon-echo Let me know if you have any feedback or you can follow the project on Twitter @AreYouFreeBusy Regards, Stefan

Good app, good writeup. Not many people thinking about complicated, interactive apps. Good to see some. If you want to do a public, interactive demo, I'm happy to list it up on the http://echosim.mybluemix.net/ page. Drop me a line jo@111george.com
