One million dollars. You can almost hear Dr. Evil saying it. But it’s not 1997, and this isn’t a spy comedy. Salesforce is really offering up one million dollars to the hacker, or team of hackers who come up with the best Salesforce integration hack at Dreamforce next week. Reserve your spot in the hackathon here.
There’s only one rule for Dreamforce hackers: you have to use the Salesforce Platform in your app. We want to make sure you have all the tools you might need to build a million dollar app at your fingertips. We’ve updated our Twilio SFDC Library to support the latest Twilio products, making it easier for you to build voice and messaging into your Salesforce and Force.com apps.
Get Started With Twilio and SFDC
- Twilio Salesforce library now updated to include MMS capability
- Twilio iOS and Twilio Android SDKs can be used side by side with the Salesforce mobile SDKS
