When Irma from 59 Days of Code contacted us to find out if we’d help them with a voting app for their competition, we were thrilled! With Twilio SMS, they were able to build a simple custom text message voting application so that thousands of people could weigh in on who they thought should be the winner. Votes were texted to a Twilio number, with a maximum of 2 votes per Caller ID.
Twilio is also offering $133.70 of Twilio developer credit to anyone who participated in the competition and would like to integrate Twilio into their project. Please contact email@example.com to claim yours!
What is 59 Days of Code?

Clocks started on April 24th, and the event culminated yesterday with a event and voting for the winner.

The prize was awarded to Post Echo, a product that tracks new events for the PR industry.
