Developer Contest: OpenVBX Plugins

OpenvbxlogoTwilio has launched a brand new open source web-based phone system for businesses called OpenVBX. You can read more about the launch on our OpenVBX blog or on TechCrunch.

One of the most important features of OpenVBX is how customizable it is including full theming support and a plugin API. For this week's netbook contest, we're challenging you to build the best OpenVBX plugin.

Thanks to our fantastic developer community we have some examples of the types of plugins you can build. Jonathan Kressaty has examples on GitHub and Andrew Watson has built a couple as well.

Now it's up to you. Enter your best OpenVBX plugin and you could win a Netbook and $100 in developer credit from Twilio. Bonus points for putting together helpful materials (screencasts, blog posts, etc.) that demonstrate the value of what you've built, or explain how it could become a business someday.

Not sure where to get started? Check out the Plugin API documentation and Applet Quickstart.

What's This Developer Contest All About?

Each week we announce a new category to encourage developers to try Twilio or OpenVBX for different use cases, industries, and integrations.  As a language-agnostic platform for cloud communications, we want to see developers from all backgrounds find success and solve problems.  To fire your imagination and reward your efforts, we've run this developer contest for over a year.

How To Get Involved

Submissions to the contest are due by Sunday June 27th, at 11:59pm Pacific Time, and can be submitted here.  If you need any help or want to bounce ideas off our Twilio developers, please join us on our OpenVBX forums or drop a note to
