Tropo is a proud to announce that we are now a Gold Sponsor of Startup Weekend Phoenix!
This weekend, hundreds of teams of Rails developers from around the globe will participate in Rails Rumble, a competition to see who can build the greatest Rails app in a single weekend. Last year’s winners included Koombea’s Hi.im, and Leah Culver’s Hurl and there have been dozens of useful applications created each year.
The vast majority of developers using our WebAPI will use one of the published, available libraries on Github. It’s true, some might be able to work with simple JSON – maybe their app only works with yes or no situations – while others might choose to write their own library to suit their specific needs. But most of you will find your happy place within the functionality of the existing Ruby, PHP, Python, Node.js or C# libraries.
A key goal of Tropo AGItate is to allow you to use Tropo seamlessly with an existing Asterisk server. With AGItate you may add any Tropo feature to your existing Asterisk server without installing additional Asterisk modules and using the AGI protocol you already know. These features include: (more…)
Tropo and GeoLoqi would like to thank all of the participants in the yesterday’s 8 hour open government hackathon! At 8:30 AM, approximately 25 code warriors converged on NedSpace, a Portland co-working space, for a full day of social hacking and a mission to change the world. The goal was to find local government data available through either CivicApps.org, run by Rick Nixon and the city of Portland, or PDX API, run by Max Ogden – master opengov hacker, and integrate it into an application that used either Tropo’s cloud communications API or GeoLoqi’s geo API (or both).
The Asterisk community is a vibrant one, one that we actively support through our sponsorship and advocacy of Adhearsion. We have decided to take it a step further and created a Tropo Scripting application that turns Tropo into a giant Asterisk application platform in the cloud. You can now run just about any Asterisk AGI application on Tropo.
