I have followed the tutorial from Amazon to get started with the Echo. I made a skill and setup an application server on their AWS Lambda for basic testing.
I have a few questions about the Echo, skills and AWS Lambda:
When I create a skill does it reside on the Echo itself or does the echo have to go out to the internet and retrieve it? If it goes out to the internet, is there any way I can develop a skill and store it locally on the Echo? (I don't want the Echo to use the internet).
The last part to the process for answering and processing a vocal command by the echo is an application server, usually AWS Lambda provided by Amazon. What do I need to setup an application server on the LAN? (I don't want the Echo to use the internet). I understand they had a software called JAWS(now serverless-serve) but I feel like I'm missing something else.
I also see I'm able to export an AmazonMachineImage. Does this mean I can set it up on my own VM? Or is it for AWS only?
