Is serverless a good tool to build Alexa skills?

I’ve been meaning to learn how to build an Alexa skill for quite some time. So, finally I thought now is the time, and having used and liked serverless in the past, I also remembered that there was a plugin available.

I found the tutorial by the plugin’s maintainer but encountered some issues, probably due to the fact that it’s two years old and the AWS infrastructure has probably moved on.

I also noticed that the plugin itself seems no longer maintained (last merge of a PR in October 2018).

So my question: is there a viable solution with serverless to build an Alexa skill, or should I go with the official Amazon tutorials and tools? Or is there a much better way that you can recommend?

Thank you for your input!
