In putting together the demo for this blog, I found there is an issue when saving data to the Alexa Session data. I can’t reliably write to this collection in the request/response JSON. Without this ability, I’d have to write a session manager myself. Honestly, I don’t have time for that. I’ve reached out to the kind folks who wrote most of the C# wrapper I use to build my skills for assistance. Until I get that resolved, this blog entry will be a placeholder. As soon as the bug is resolved, I’ll return and fill in the development details here.
You’ll see updates on Twitter when this article is updated.
