Internal Hack Day with Amigo Loans

Sometimes a company just needs to sit down and have a good ol’ hack day to figure out the next best thing to build. We hosted an Internal Hack Day with Amigo Loans, a new kind of loan platform based on your personal network. Together we walked through the Twilio API and prototyped out new ideas for Amigo Loans to use in their business.

thehackathonIT Director Mark Burgess said “it was great to do a deep dive into something new with my team, away from the office and with the product experts.  The guys from Twilio did a great job introducing the technology, got straight into code examples and within minutes my team were up and running, making calls and sending texts.  The challenges they were set helped us quickly get an understanding of the platform, capabilities, limitations and gave us some examples/demos to take back to the business.  There was no sales pitch, just people that deeply believe in the solution and its possibilities.  We still have work to do to be certain Twilio is right for us, but by doing the hack we learned a lot very fast and can now make a more informed decision.”
