Crunched is a sales and marketing intelligence platform that helps its users close more deals with deeper insights into their customers. Crunched uses the Tropo and Phono APIs to provide conferencing services. Roger Billerey-Mosier, VP Engineering and Product at Crunched explained, “Tropo provides unmatched reliability and customer support. You need a partner that’s there 24/7, that has the deep expertise in telecoms, that has engineered a platform that I feel confident in running our business upon at scale. Voxeo Labs is that partner.”
Continuing on our recent post about a clever phone-enabled coffee machine hack comes another ingenious hack from our friends at Developer Garden. (We announced our partnership with Deutsche Telekom’s Developer Garden giving developers full access to the Telekom Tropo API last year.) Flexing that well-known German ingenuity, these developers created a phone-enabled vending machine app. Yes, you can now get your 4pm gummy bear fix by simply talking to the vending machine. You no longer have to scrounge for change or ask your coworker to borrow another quarter, simply call up your vending machine and just ask nicely.
This weekend in San Francisco, join Tropo for a special kind of hackathon welcoming first time hackers. Everyone Hacks is designed to create safe space while expanding what you think you’re capable of. In a collaborative setting, you’ll produce a surprising amount of work in a very short period of time, both with people you have only just met and old friends. The event is reaching out to women who are interested in these events, and is definitely transgender and queer friendly. Male-bodied folk are also welcome.
Last weekend in Las Vegas, AT&T held their annual Developer Summit and Hackathon. Among the over $100,000 in prizes, AT&T offered a $10,000 prize for the team that best used their new Call Management API, powered by Tropo and the Ericsson IMS for WebRTC. While there were over 70 cool hacks that came out of the event, the team that won the $10,000 prize was an app called Joyride.
This past weekend in Las Vegas, AT&T held their 6th Developer Summit and Hackathon at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. Many of us from the Voxeo Labs team were on hand to assist the hackathon teams with building apps using the AT&T’s new Call Management API powered by Tropo. The event was a great success with over 400 developers creating over 70 hacks in less than 48 hours. Read the rest of this entry »
You may have noticed we’ve been a little quiet around here lately. That’s because we’ve been busy elves, working on a host of projects, not the least of which is that our own Tropo community manager, Cristina Moe Salanova, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Please join me in congratulating Cristina and her husband Carlos on the newest member of the Voxeo Labs team.
