Thanks a lot @chrismessina for hunting us! Jovo is an open source development framework for voice applications. The Amazon announcements from yesterday and the upcoming Google event next week show that the big platforms are working hard to push voice assistants into every household, smartphone, gadget, or car. This makes it difficult for developers to bet on the right platform to build their voice applications on. We don't want this to become the next iOS/Android situation. This is why we built Jovo for better cross-platform development (and beyond). Here are some features: * Node.js package to easily build for both Amazon Alexa and Google Home with only one code base * Integrations for Analytics, Databases, and Logging * Easy setup for either local prototyping or hosting on AWS Lambda * A User Object that makes it easy to store user specific data for more contextual experiences * Platform-specific features like Echo Show templates and Google Assistant suggestion chips Looking forward to answering any questions you have. @alexswetlow and I will be around all day 🙌 Thank you!

@peter_oehler Thank you! We're working on more integrations with databases and other tools to help people create more advanced voice apps easier. Also, there are a few more voice platforms that we're looking into adding to the framework (e.g. Microsoft Cortana). Down the road is our support for multimodal applications with an API as a layer on top of the (forever free) framework.
