New Developer Contest: Get Cozy With Twilio

Everyone needs a place to live, but it’s not always easy to find one. Anyone that’s moved to a major city at some point in their life knows how much of a pain it is to find an affordable place in a decent neighborhood. And it’s not enough to simply find it, if you don’t move quickly someone might snatch it up before you!

For this week’s developer contest, we want to see how you would use Twilio to make things easier. Create a system that sends you an SMS when a place meeting your criteria comes on the market. Or build a tool that helps people coordinate with their couchsurfing guests. Be creative and make something that solves people’s housing problem.

Entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM PST on Sunday May 15th. Entries can be submitted here. The winner will receive an Amazon Kindle 3G, $100 in Twilio credit, and some sweet Twilio gear.

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 can be submitted here. If you need any help or want to bounce ideas off other Twilio developers, please join us on our forums or drop a note to help@twilio.com.
