New Developer Contest: Power Up Conferencing with Twilio

It’s easy to create simple conference calls using Twilio’s <Conference> verb. For this week’s developer contest, we’d like to see how you could take conferencing to the next level.

For example, Bridg.me used Twilio to create “impossibly simple conference calling”—just add a meeting in your Google Calendar and all the participants get called automatically when it’s time for the conference, no need to remember conference PIN numbers.

Lucid Meetings is another example of conferencing taken to the next level. They used Twilio’s conferencing features to create a service that helps people hold effective meetings using parliamentary procedures.

This week, be creative and show us how you’d power up conferencing. You could win $100 in Twilio credit, an Amazon Kindle 3G, and some sweet Twilio swag.

For those of you new to conferencing in Twilio, here’s a short video to get you up to speed.

What’s This Developer Contest All About?

Each week we announce a new category to encourage developers to try Twilio for different use cases, industries, and integrations.  As a language-agnostic platform for cloud communications, we want to see developers from all backgrounds find success and solve problems with Twilio. To fire your imagination and reward your efforts, we’ve run this developer contest for over a year.

How To Get Involved

Submissions to the contest can be submitted here. If you need any help or want to bounce ideas off other Twilio developers, please join us on our forums or drop a note to help@twilio.com.
