Twilio – Telephony in the cloud

[repost because the original post was lost due to an error from my hosting provider]

Interested in an easy way to hook up your application to the phone system ? Check out
Twilio!

Haven’t used it yet, but it seems easy as pie!

Yes, you can probably do the same with Asterisk but figuring out the web service to Twilio is probably a lot easier/faster than installing and learning Asterisk.

…and welcome to my (=Piet Hadermann) ‘blog’.
Well, actually… I’m planning on using this more as an automated notepad to preserve various notes (probably all IT/development related, since I don’t usually keep notes concerning anything else) for the future.

I tended to keep notes on paper. Although paper has some big advantages (extreme portability, low power requirements, really nice tactile user interface) I was always unable to find the notes I needed later on. Unfortunately Google also turned out to be unable to index my notes. I guess their bot was unable to decipher my handwriting or decided it was spam.

I also use a ‘private’ wiki for various notes and brain-dumps, but as from now on I’m planning on dumping any info that might benefit someone else right here.

In the past I’ve often stumbled upon blogs and web pages of people doing just this when I was looking for a way to solve a problem or some information. This is my way of giving something back without really having to put in any extra effort (I especially like the ‘no extra effort’ part).

blahblah yadayada and so on… (you should really get a hobby if you’ve read this far)
