Twilio.com evangelist Rahim Sonawalla will explain, code, and live demo Twilio.com's API that helps you build apps that communicate. Twilio provides
infrastructure APIs for businesses to build scalable, reliable
voice and text messaging apps. (Note from Richard: I saw this presentation last month at the LAMP group and it is very cool. Rahim fits our group's style; he will take on a challenge to code stuff on the fly, live.)
TWILIO VOICE: Build applications that use the phone network to interact with people on landlines and cell phones all over the world. In just a few lines of code, you'll have phones ringing.
TWILIO SMS: Build applications that interact via text messages. Get up and running in minutes with a simple, phone-number based API or apply for your very own short code today.
TWILIO CLIENT: Audio pipes that turn every application into a phone. Connect your users across web browsers, mobile phones, tablets, and even traditional phones. Let users talk in your apps using their existing internet connection. Add voice everywhere in 3 lines of code.
PHONE NUMBERS: Access our extensive inventory of phone numbers. Use our REST API or Account Dashboard to purchase toll free or local numbers across the US and Canada.
Meeting will lead off as always:
NEWS SEGMENT: Roundtable share – news, gossip, predictions, and the like.
Q&A BULL SESSION: Share issues and problems for which you are seeking solutions, or any tech question at all, with the group.
RECRUITERS & SEEKERS STAND-UP: Looking to hire or for a gig? You'll get a chance to stand up and state your requirements before the main talk begins.
GADGET CORNER: Bring a gadget to show off. Open to everyone. The gadget voted best gets awarded the title of Gadget-Voted-Best
PLUS: Occasional surprises, and the usual band of miscreants, regulars, and irregulars.
