New Developer Contest: Twilio + DotCloud

For this week’s developer contest, we’ve partnered with our friends at DotCloud. Unlike most PaaS providers that are centered around a single language (Orchestra for PHP, AppHarbor for .NET, and so on), DotCloud, let’s you easily build your own, custom stack. For example, you could be running a classic PHP/MySQL setup and with just a few edits of a config file, swap out MySQL for MongoDB.

This week, create a Twilio application hosted on the fantastically flexible DotCloud platform and you could win:

  • $100 in Twilio credit
  • A Pro DotCloud account
  • An insanely awesome Arduino Gadget Pack
  • Swag from both Twilio and DotCloud

Bonus points for putting together helpful materials (screencasts, blog posts, etc.) that demonstrate the value of what you’ve built, or explain how it could become a business someday.

Entries must be submitted by 11:59pm PT on Sunday July 24th. Entries can be submitted here.

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.
