The holidays are upon us! This means lots of napping, big meals, more napping, and too much time with family. The best part? Extra time for hacking. So we thought an extra special API mashup developer challenge would be perfect over the extended holidays, with just a smidge of holiday cheer.
The Challenge: Build a Digital Rube Goldberg machine
How the Twilio Rube Goldberg Contest Works
We’ll be judging on the best use of multiple APIs and Twilio capabilities, the more the better, along with the most creative implementation. Maybe use this time to dig into Twilio Client or try out a TwiML verb you’ve never used before. Use of holiday theme for extra bonus points.
Looking for some new APIs to play with? Here’s a few of our favorites:
If you’re looking for inspiration take a look at last year’s holiday contest, where anything goes. A hacked doorbell, Blizzalert for the snow and a translation app just to name a few.
What’s at stake for this contest, aside from the epic glory of mashing the most API’s ever mashed before with Twilio? We’re giving away a Mac Book Air *and* a full-sized Christmas Story Leg Lamp.
What’s This Developer Contest About?
Every two weeks, we encourage developers to build something awesome with a Twilio-powered contest. As a language agnostic platform for cloud communications, we want developers of every shape, size and stripe to solve problems and grab a little glory using Twilio. To kickstart the creative process, we’ve run these developer contests for over a year.
