Last week, we announced a contest to send one lucky node.js hacker to NodeConf 2013. We had a bunch of amazing entries, but the hack that stood out as the most useful and innovative use of the API was SMSFoo, by Jed Wood (pictured right).
About The Hack
Wufoo is an online form builder which makes it incredibly easy to build and distribute web forms. SMSFoo SMS-enables forms you’ve built in Wufoo, so you can distribute them and collect responses via SMS. This enables you to use Wufoo forms to collect information from users without internet access, or on any mobile device. Very cool stuff.
Jed has spent the past decade bridging the gap between design and programming by creating rapid prototypes and production applications. He recently served as a Presidential Innovation Fellow. Now he’s back in Chicago, spending most of his time building and connecting APIs with node.js.
