Get Wired In With Twilio Presence

Hot off the heels of our Twilio Connect contest, this week we’re taking our contests realtime with Twilio Presence.  We launched this feature for Twilio Client at our first-ever Twilio Conference and ever since developers have been integrating it with their Client implementations to display information on which Twilio Clients are connected.

Implementation is easy – simply add Twilio Client’s new .presence() to your Twilio Device and your app will receive notifications whenever the availability of any of your Twilio Clients changes.  It works like any other event handler in Twilio Client:

Like our Twilio Connect contest, we’re opening this one up to existing Twilio Client apps.  If your Twilio Client application has not won a Twilio developer contest previously, hooked up Presence and your application is eligible for entry.

What’s on the line? Nothing less than a brand new 11-inch Macbook Air.

Contest Rules

This week’s contest is pretty specific, but each entry must conform to these requirements.

  • Entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM PDT Sunday October 30th

What’s This Developer Contest About?

Each fortnight, we incent developers to build something awesome with a Twilio-powered contest.  As a language agnostic platform for cloud communications, we want developers of every shape, size and stripe to solve problems and grab a little glory using Twilio. To kickstart the creative process, we’ve run these developer contests for over a year.

How To Get Involved

Submissions are accepted via this handy-dandy form. If you need any help or want to bounce some ideas off of other Twilio coders, join us on our forums or just drop a note to help@twilio.com.
