For some reason some of the blog post were set to be pages so going to link them in this post so it is known.
So this is my last post for my project so basically, I am going to wrap this up by mentioning what I learned in each skill set and how I think I went in terms of the skill set and time management.
Then with the Second skill set, I really learned that when something is in Beta in terms of code and API’s as since I didn’t really get this skill set working it showed me to research about the API’s before using them as even though it was an Amazon API I should have learnt more through the documentation and in terms of time management for this skill set I would say that I need to improve on it for this one as I couldn’t really find the time to research the getlist API so was kind of a let down.
Lastly for the third skill, even though I only got half of the skill set done I still learned a lot as I learnt that the skill set in terms of the Lambda code doesn’t need to be that big in terms of lines as this wasn’t a lot in terms of lines of code which kind of surprised me as even though I made a lot of mistakes in the code and fixed them it took a lot of patients as it was right in front of me the whole time.
So in terms of the report, I am currently halfway through the word count as kind of at the time didn’t know about the word count that we had to get up to in order to submit the report so kind of panicking about this limit. But I am confident that I can get to this word count but if I don’t I will talk to the tutor in terms of this as never been confident at writing really long reports.
My plans for tomorrow is to try and add this body code from the first skill set and see if it works with this skill set this is due to the change in my skill set goal.
So today I retired using the template for SES which is on github but it turns out that when I created the Lambda function I didn’t select the right blueprint which basically enabled it to work so now I am going to try and implement this into my one this weekend and if it doesn’t work less I got a prototype for it to work, show and explain during poster evening.
Due to be me been busy with the coding side of this project I haven’t been able to post as often as the due time is closing in and so I have been focusing on this instead of the post as I want to have at least an attempt to this skill set in terms of code and creating it from scratch.
In terms of the code so far for the skill set 3 I have the Gmail API functions in the index.js file and I have got the login details to communicate with their API server as I need to have this to verify the account is my and that it relates to that project on Google.
Due to technical difficulties with the alexa api list not working for me I have decided to take that function out of skill set 3 this is due to the api is still freshly released so there are problems that need fixing as because when I use the Amazon template for the api it doesn’t work for some reason even when it isn’t edited. So, for now, I am going to focus on the email side of the 3rd skill set as the api for gmail looks really cool and I want to try and use my own code to try and get this working as they got a good tutorial on their website.
