You're a techie. You write brilliant code and have amazing ideas. I bet you think that's enough to start a tech company. It's not. But good news: it's probably easier for you to learn business than for the businessfolk to learn your l33t skillz. (Most of getting a real MBA is getting drunk, anyhow.) David will share share how he wrapped his brain around business. Hint: it's not too scary and mainly involves making sure that you are actually solving real problems.
In this session, we'll give you an introduction to sending and receiving SMS messages with Twilio. We'll also cover best practices and explain the differences between shortcodes and longcodes, and when to use each.
Panel discussion with community managers of leading developer products companies. Interactive discussion with audience members on how companies and community managers can make developers successful, best practices, lessons learned and hardships along the road, the future of community management and more.

Twilio integrates well with MVC frameworks - and the Zend Framework is no exception. If you’re starting a new project, you’ll find that Twilio and Zend get along just fine - and if you have an existing Zend application that you want to add some Twilio to, don’t worry. Even if it’s invited to the party a little late, Twilio still fits right in. Be inspired to use Twilio and Zend for your next project, and find some ways to streamline your code if you’re already using the two together.

The typical outbound call center is hamstrung by huge up-front hardware costs, expensive license fees, a fixed capacity, and a shortage of engineers capable of managing their dialer. Using Twilio, Impact Dialing built an incredibly scalable predictive dialer with setup costs or long-term contracts. Twilio allowed us to build our software quickly without worrying about obscure protocols and systems, and has helped us build and release new features quickly and with confidence.

Twilio has found its way into every kind of web application you can dream of. Even beyond the web is the tangible world of connected electronic devices, with all its particular quirks and pitfalls. This session will show you, a hardware-curious web developer, how to build an Arduino-based connected device that can use Twilio to do things with a non-computer, non-smartphone interface for the purpose of creating epic lulz.

Concurrency is hard! By ZeroMQ and Gevent, you have a powerful toolkit for easily throwing together distributed systems in a “normal” language. Although we’ll focus on Gevent and ZeroMQ in Python, the lessons of this talk apply to any language. We’ll dive in and explain these two technologies and then explore them together in action.
We'll show off some of the coolest apps built for fun before diving into a discussion on why building games and toys is a natural first step for developers exploring new tools like Twilio.
So much of the culture of the web stands in stark contrast to our notions of what it’s like to work in government or healthcare, but a lot is quietly changing, and there’s increasingly an opportunity for web 2.0 teams to make a real impact on these markets, which represent 30% and 16% of our GDP annually. Come hear from the founders of two leading organizations in the startups for good movement, Rock Health and Code for America, about how you can use your skills to change the world.
Drupal is one of the leading Content Management Systems in the world running sites as diverse as White House to Major League Soccer. The VoIP Drupal module adds to that ecosystem to integrate Voice and SMS directly into your site:
With absolutely no coding.
Most of the Twilio Quick Start code demonstrates "Hello World, I'm Talking You Your Telephone". That's great, but actually building a business on Twilio means your application has to solve some important design considerations. This topic covers design and development of Twilio applications to make them easier to develop, easier to deploy, easier to secure, and easier to delight customers.
A text message or phone call is only valuable if it reaches the right person with the right message at the right time. Whether it's a reminder to take medication, a marketing campaign to sell tickets, or a phone call to congress, Mobile Commons will show you that segmentation, targeting and customization creates the best user-experience and is the most effective way to measure the ROI of your mobile campaign. Real world examples include the Obama campaign, Nike, the NBA, New York City, and more.
Pretty much every web service that uses HTTP verbs is calling itself RESTful these days, but what does that even mean? What makes a service RESTful? Why would you write a service using the REST style? Why are most services that call themselves RESTful actually just RPC in REST clothing? Steve will answer all these questions and more, as well as discussing where following strict REST does not make sense.
