Our last two hacknights (with TokBox and Pusher) have been incredible and we’re super excited to announce the next Simpleweb Challenge! This time, the theme will be cloud communications and will be sponsored by the wonderful Twilio!

Twilio’s global API allows developers to build intelligent and complex communications systems. We’ll be challenging hackers to build something cool using any of Twilio’s APIs which enable phones, VoIP and SMS to be embedded into apps and websites.

Thanks to Twilio’s sponsorship, we’ll be able to provide delicious homemade food as well as proper beers, ciders and soft drinks to keep us going. We’ll also have some great prizes for the winner and runners up (to be announced!).

The night isn’t just for hardcore developers, but you’ll want a developer on your team to help you get set up with Twilio. You can work alone, or in teams of up to 3 people. Feel free to leave a comment on the Meetup page if you’re looking for teammates!

Want to know more about what to expect? Check out what happened when we ran a hacknight with TokBox and another with Pusher. And don’t forget to RSVP on Meetup. We hope to see you there!
