New Developer Contest: Python-powered Twilio Apps (ends Nov 14)

Python-logo For this week's contest we're calling on all Python developers to build the best app they can using the Twilio API for a chance to win some great prizes. It doesn't matter if you're into Django, Flask,, Pylons, Juno, bottle, itty, Tornado, Twisted, web2py, Pyramid, pyroutes or just straight Python. If your app uses Python and Twilio, you're eligible to win.

To get you started, check out the Python app gallery for inspiration or grab our Python helper library. Don't know Python but want to learn? Check out Zed Shaw's "Learn Python The Hard Way". It's easier than it sounds!

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.

The winner of this week's contest will receive a Graphite Amazon Kindle 3G, a $50 O'Reilly Gift Card to load up the Kindle with books and $100 in Twilio credit. Entries must be submitted by 11:59pm PT on Sunday November 14th. Entries can be submitted here.

What's This Developer Contest All About?

Each week we announce a new category to encourage developers to try Twilio 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 with Twilio.  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 November 14th, 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 forums or drop a note to

IMPORTANT: Everyone who has submitted previously and did not win is eligible to resubmit (we love that we make the rules!) so if you built a Twilio app in the past but weren't a winner we hope you'll consider sprucing up you old app for another chance at winning!
