The web is becoming more real-time. Learn about three of the most popular technologies powering the event-driven web: Webhooks, PubSubHubbub, and Streaming APIs. How should you consume them? How should you implement them? Which method is right for your project or company? These answers and more will be revealed in this tech talk with code examples and perhaps some live demos!
Chad Etzel Chad is an internet API junkie who loves the real-time web. He is the founder of Notifo.com, a mobile notification platform. Previously, Chad flipped bits at Cisco developing next-generation routing hardware

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.
Discover how easy (and fun!) it is to get started building Twilio applications using Heroku. Check out twilio.heroku.com for a simple example of deploying a Ruby app with Heroku, Sinatra, and Twilio and discover how this powerful platform enables developers to rapidly deploy and scale awesome Twilio-powered apps. This will be a hands-on session, and follow-along coding on your own laptop is encouraged.
A growing number of enterprise mobile applications are being created to help solve common workforce and salesforce challenges. Jonathan will speak on opportunities to extend them with Twilio SMS and voice automation by discussing these topics: Improving the collection, transport & reliability of field data Coordinating in-the-field support and training Optimizing user identity verification Handling speech-to-text transcription Simplifying procurement across devices and interfaces
Twilio has found its way into every kind of web application you can dream of. Even beyond the web is the tangible world of connected electronic devices, with all its particular quirks and pitfalls. This session will show you, a hardware-curious web developer, how to build an Arduino-based connected device that can use Twilio to do things with a non-computer, non-smartphone interface for the purpose of creating epic lulz.
Concurrency is hard! By ZeroMQ and Gevent, you have a powerful toolkit for easily throwing together distributed systems in a "normal" language. Although we'll focus on Gevent and ZeroMQ in Python, the lessons of this talk apply to any language. We'll dive in and explain these two technologies and then explore them together in action.
