Printable version of the Alexa Skills Kit documentation

I took all of the documents linked from this page:
https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/alexa/alexa-skills-kit/getting-started-guide

And made them into a single, printable, PDF file.

Download Here

I removed color from the images and embedded the fonts.  I also applied optimization to reduce size and, although I have not tested yet, made it viewable on mobile devices.

I am not attempting to skirt around the Amazon site.  I know that myself, and some others learn better from a physical document.  I guess since we spent much of our lives studying that way (or atleast I did), it seems more comfortable to me.

This may not be perfect, I apologize ahead of time.  You can always download it and look it over before printing.

Also all section from the list below are included *except* the entire Publishing section.  Please refer to the website for the publishing guidance.
