Coding Dojo is raising its voice.

The coding bootcamp provider partnered with Amazon to create a curriculum for Alexa skills, which are the capabilities of the voice interface.

From July-November, Coding Dojo has a slate of workshops planned at its year-old Mclean, Va., location to educate devs on how to build an Alexa skill, and get it certified for publication on Amazon.

“Alexa is a powerful service for consumers, and skills are the way it continues to add even more capabilities,” said Coding Dojo CEO Michael Choi. “It’s impressive how many skills have already been created, and we’re honored to work with Amazon to help developers make Alexa as useful as possible.”

The first workshop is set for July 8.

The workshops are a sign of Amazon’s efforts to engage the dev community in building Alexa skills. There’s currently a collection of 13,000. The Alexa Skills Tour is also coming to Arlington, Va., on July 10-11.
