Tropo makes it simple to automate communications, connecting your code to the phone network with both voice and messaging. You use the web technologies you already know and Tropo’s powerful cloud API to bring real-time communications to your apps.
If you can create a web site, you can create an application that makes and receive phone calls, uses voice recognition or interact over text messages. Your code can even create multi-party conference lines and transcribe entire calls to text. There’s no need to learn new languages, wrestle with VoIP software, or learn about telephony. Host your code with Tropo, or use your existing web server in the language of your choice.Tropo adds a few simple communications commands to your favorite programming languages.Try it for free!
In Spark, conversations take place in virtual meeting rooms. Some rooms live for a few hours while others become permanent fixtures of your team's workflow with titles like Daily Standup or Build Status. Spark allows conversations to flow seamlessly between messages, video calls and real-time whiteboarding sessions. No other solution brings together so many facets of collaboration into a single unified platform.
This initial release is focused primarily on room management and getting content in and out of Spark. With this initial set of APIs you can already:
The Presidio Code Camp Hackathon is optional, however we encourage everyone to participate. If you are a software developer, designer, sales engineer, project manager, or just someone with great ideas and a willingness to dig in and collaborate intensively on software projects, you will want to be sure and participate. The focus of this Hackathon is to create a solution using technologies based on the Cisco Spark and Tropo Platforms. There is no restriction on the type of software being created.
