  • Node Twilio

    by Stephen Walters

    Node.js has been making waves over the few years since its inception. Centered around event-driven programming and built on the V8 Javascript runtime, node is the next mutation in the evolution of evented network programming. Node-Twilio (https://github.com/sjwalter/node...) is a helper library for node, and it makes interacting with Twilio's REST API as easy as interacting with an EventEmitter. This talk will give a quick overview of node, and then dive into using Node-Twilio to write complex Twilio apps in surprisingly little time

  • Twilio and the Zend Framework

    by Tim Lytle

    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.

  • Building an outbound call center with Twilio

    by Michael Kaiser-Nyman

    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.
