Session abstract: 

10 years ago, mobile changed the way users access information. This was made possible by the relentless innovation brought about by developers who built experiences from the ground up to be mobile-first. Today, as millions of users get accustomed to speaking to their devices, mobile developers have an opportunity to pioneer again, with voice.

In this hands-on workshop, you will apply the foundations of voice design by building different types of voice-enabled experiences e.g. a game from the ground up.
