Twilio just announced a new developer contest in conjunction with Appirio. Thanks to the (sleepless) efforts of Kyle Roche and Aslam Bari (both from Appirio), Twilio is now available for development on the Force.com platform. You can download the Force.com for Twilio classes, components and Visualforce pages at the Force.com Code Share site.
If you haven't heard of Twilio yet, it is a web-service API for businesses to build scalable, reliable communications apps that make and receive phone calls. You can use Twilio for:
- Lead Generation
- Voice Broadcast
- Company Phone
- Voicemail Transcription
I signed up for a Force.com Free account and am going to build a telephone hot-line for our Foster Parent Association. What are you going to build?
