Team TwilioQuest is thrilled to announce our newest mission, the OSS Elephpant! This mission introduces players to local development with PHP through a series of fun challenges. Playing through this mission, you will learn fundamental skills with this popular server-side programming language. You can download and play TwilioQuest right now to try it out!
A new mission
Board the OSS Elephpant, a massive living colony ship whose slumbering passengers need your help! A series of mysterious malfunctions have imperiled the ship's crew, and only you can restore order by repairing the ship’s systems.
The first several challenges within this mission are available today, with many more to come in the following weeks. Be sure to follow us on Twitter or join our mailing list to be the first to hear when even more new PHP content is available.
Meet the creator of the PHP mission
"Hi, my name is Margaret, and I got to take the lead creating this new part of the TwilioQuest universe! As a Developer Evangelist I loved to create arcade-like experiences at events using TwilioQuest because I love the concept so much, and earlier this year I was very excited to get to join the team creating it!
I've been working primarily with PHP for the last 20 years, and have often lamented the lack of assisted learning experiences available for what is a truly outstanding open source programming language. Getting to tackle that challenge within the context of a retro sci-fi video game is a bizarrely specific dream come true!" You can learn more about Margaret here.
