A few days ago I had a couple of ideas in the shower:
A conference call system that dials its participants. A bank that issues reward points based on how much you save. It was a long shower.— Andre Torrez (@torrez) March 27, 2012
I just wrote the first one as a simple script that demonstrates how to do it with Twilio. If I actually had real free time I would build a little web UI where you could fill in the numbers, set a time, and get your own personalized conference room (with all the features you find in a regular conferencing system) to dial you and the participants when it’s time for the call.
But maybe that’s something you want to build?
The one thing I learned from this is Twilio is pretty damn cool. The documentation is good and the API is a good one.
