Developer Contest: Hack in the New Year with an App for DOers

It’s a brand new year and the time to jump into new challenges and start

drawing fucking owls. Say farewell to 2011 and welcome 2012 with a hack for the age of DOers.
Being the very first developer contest to kick off the new year, this theme focuses on making 2012 the best year ever. 2012 is about thinking big, taking risks, and “DOing” the only way Twilions know how.

The Challenge: Build an App for the 2012 DOer

This developer contest challenge is to build an app to help us get it all done. GTD, GSD, or whatever framework you choose, let’s cross those tasks off lists, wipe stories off the board, bust bugs in the backlog and show that New Year’s Baby who’s boss.

Find Your DOer Inspiration

If you’re looking for inspiration, read about Jonathan Kressaty’s TwiMLbin, a hosting solution he built to help his team and others test Twilio apps quickly and efficiently. Or this voice reminder app built by Tryn Mirell to support his goal of keeping his kitty’s litter box at its cleanest.

What’s at stake for this contest, aside from the personal achievement of taking on a new goal and kicking it into high gear? We’re giving one winner a Kindle Fire.

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.
