Twilio provides a simple hosted API and markup language for businesses to quickly build scalable, reliable and advanced voice and SMS communications applications. Twilio provides a telephony infrastructure web service "in the cloud", enabling web programmers to integrate real-time phone calls into their applications. Twilio's simple Pay-As-You-Go pricing model means customers pay for capacity only when they need it, not before. Voice applications written on Twilio's cloud solution scale transparently, eliminating programming, operational and contractual headaches frequently associated with rapid growth or traffic spikes.
Twilio provides a cloud API for voice and SMS communications that leverages existing web development skills, resources and infrastructure. It minimizes the learning curve required to build advanced, reliable voice communications applications that solve critical business needs. The syntax and programming model are focused on making application development as close to the request/response model of web application development as possible. The API uses a RESTful interface and responses are formatted in HTML, JSON, XML or CSV.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
Many of us have a love/hate relationship with appointment reminders. Maybe the least annoying notification is a text message, and it's also the easiest. The Twilio REST API lets you create intelligent reminders, and you can also benefit from simple integration with your CRM and reservation systems.
Inventory monitoring solutions make it easy for businesses to predict production demands and inventory spoilage remotely to increase efficiency and profits. This tutorial shows you how to leverage Twilio Functions to build an industrial sensor to monitor temperature, humidity and object weight.
The connected camera category has seen much growth since 2014. In this tutorial, we reproduce the basic functionality of a camera like the Nest Cam but with the unique property of being cellular connected. We will use a Twilio Programmable Wireless starter pack and Raspberry Pi to do this.
In the very early days of APIs, when John Musser founded ProgrammableWeb, the default for every new API was open--wide open. As the industry has matured, companies have become more careful to enter the open, public API waters. Though the number of APIs is still growing rapidly, most new APIs look very different from those of a few years ago. Popular services used to launch with public APIs, or perhaps have them soon after. Now the popular services are more likely to hold out for awhile, perhaps learning from those before. This wariness of openness has perhaps gone too far, ignoring the positive potential of embracing the ecosystem.
