Target audience

The material in this course is appropriate for beginners with no knowledge of code and experienced developers alike. This course is modular so you can either start from the beginning or jump to any section, download the code and learn.


To teach you the fundamentals of ACDL, we have prepared a multi-turn skill called Flight Search. The skill asks a series of questions and finds the cheapest flight option based upon the answers. Along the way you will learn the concepts in context so you will be equipped to build your own skill upon completing this course.
