Twilio Teams up with Amazon Web Services for This Week's Netbook Contest Category: AWS

This week, in addition to our usual prize of a Dell mini Netbook, we’re teaming up with Amazon Web Services and they will be awarding the winner of this week’s Twilio Netbook Contest category $250 of AWS credits.

The category for submissions is wide open this week, our only requirement is that you build something with Twilio that uses Amazon Web Services and submit by midnight on Sunday, August 30th.  Whether you are new to Twilio, or have submitted in the past, we encourage you to give it a shot this week.

It’s Raining Netbooks!

Our Netbook Contest has been so much fun that we’ve decided to keep it going beyond the ten week we originally planned, and we will be featuring the winner of this week’s category (Week #15!) on our blog and website along with submissions from this and previous week’s that didn’t get the prize but definitely got our attention.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out the contest page where we have a list of the previous winner and categories over the last 14 weeks.

This Week’s Winners by Bradley Lambert

Viewers experience a pregame pep talk, and receive a customized call on their phone from the head football coach of the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders.  The coach’s phone message is unique for each home football game of the season and for each “favorite play” selected.

AdGames by Chad Etzel

The AdGames demo provides an interactive gaming advertising method that advertisers could use in store fronts or anywhere else that an internet enabled screen can be displayed. By turning the cell-phone into a video game controller, anyone walking around a mall or city shopping district can now become an engaged player instantly.
