New prizes, new deadline, and a new chance to win this week's Twilio developer contest!

Rest-reference-arrows Last week we launched a new API with some of the most popular features you requested. To celebrate the new API, our contest last week was the always popular ‘Anything Goes’ category, with huge bonus points if you used any of the new API features. We got a lot of great entries, but we know that hacking on a holiday weekend doesn’t work for everyone. So we’re extending the deadline for the contest until Sunday September 12th and 11:59PM PT.

Twiml-reference-arrows If you’ve already submitted an entry, you don’t have to do anything more, although you’re free to spruce it up and resubmit it. And to reward you for entering by the original deadline, we’ll be dropping a little surprise in your account shortly.

To make winning this week’s contest extra worth your while, we’re raising the stakes. In previous contests we’ve given away a netbook and $100 in Twilio credit. For this contest, we’re doubling the credit to $200 and giving away a brand new prize. We’ve given away so many netbooks, we thought it was about time to give away the absolutely best way to carry a netbook or any other laptop. There is no better laptop bag than the Tom Bihn Checkpoint Flyer, proudly hand-made in Seattle, WA. Just take a look at this beauty:

Last, but certainly not least, we’re going to fill up the bag with all sorts of Twilio goodies before we send it your way.

Enough chatter, it’s time to start building something! Check out the new API changelog or the updated docs, build something great and win yourself some sweet prizes! If you’re ready to submit your application head over to our entry form, or if you want to learn more about the Twilio developer contests we’ve got a page with all the info you’ll ever need.
