Building the Trick-or-Treat Hotline with Twilio

We’ve got a contest going over at Twilio for the best Halloween inspired app, so I thought it would be fun to build my own (although I’m not eligible to win the contest – darn it!)

If you call (206) 701-6291 you’ll be connected to my Halloween hotline, which is a very simple Twilio app I built using PHP in about 20 minutes while hanging out with my family leading up to Hallow’s Eve.

In all, the app is probably about 100 lines of code divided across several files – you can read all about it and get the sample code to build your own hotline here.
