How to get the classic Windows Defender back on Windows 10 Creators Update

Change can be good, but not always. While Windows 10 is a great operating system, many people would prefer to stay with Windows 7. Stick with what they know and like.

But take a second look and you’ll notice it requires an external dependency. It brings in the alexa-sdk npm package. I’ll show that not only don’t you need the alexa-sdk to teach Alexa a Skill but you might actually be better off without it. var Alexa = require(‘alexa-sdk’); The alexa-sdk claims to let you “focus on your skill’s logic instead of boilerplate code.” But it’s exactly this… [Continue Reading]
