I’ve been one of the Twilio (an API for Voice and SMS) experts at AirPair for a while. AirPair is a great little service that matches up software developers with experts in the field – trying to implement in-app purchase on iOS ? There’s probably an expert on that. Want to migrate from MySQL to MongoDB for your Django application? Find that expert on AirPair. The idea is that you can hire those experts on an hourly basis forĀ a video interview where they help you out.

Because I like working with Twilio, and I’ve done a lot of work advising developers on how to use Twilio in various projects, I agreed to give a talk during AirPair’s first conference – AirConf – on August 6th, at 12 pm Central Daylight Time/5pm Greenwich Mean Time. Why is the time so important? It’s a virtual conference, conducted over Google Hangouts. So you don’t have to be in the same physical location as I am for the conference – no travel necessary!

I’m covering Twilio for beginners, so if you’re not familiar with Twilio, this is a great talk to attend. If you’ve already used Twilio in a few applications, it’s probably going to be a lot of things you already know, like how to send or receive an SMS. I’m going to try and be as language neutral as possible in my talk – I’ve used the Twilio API from Java, Ruby, Objective-C, PHP, and Javascript, and it all basically works the same, so that shouldn’t be an issue. I’m still looking to have an excuse to use Twilio from C# or Python!
