Build Server Notifications with Twilio Programmable Messaging

Text messages are a great channel for sending out time-sensitive alert messages.

With higher open rates and more immediacy than e-mail, text messages help you reach your users quickly while avoiding their disastrous inboxes. Customers like Pager Duty use text messages as a part of their notification scheme to let IT administrators know quickly when their computers are on fire.

Wish your server would alert you automatically if something goes wrong? In this tutorial, we'll show you a simple web application which sends out alert messages to server administrators when an error condition occurs.

Find your language and framework of choice below to get to the source code in your language and follow step-by-step instructions to learn how to build server notifications.

Happy building!
