The introduction of this blog post is a guest post from Twilio Developer Evangelist Kevin Whinnery.
API platforms like Parse and Twilio are changing the way developers build applications. By providing high-level building blocks for tasks like data persistence, user management, messaging, and VoIP communication, developers can rapidly assemble new software solutions when an opportunity arises. With these capabilities in hand, developers can focus on building unique value for their users in surprising ways. They can use software to solve problems that were previously out of their reach.
This is just one example of the new breed of applications that are now easily created by software people. We can't wait to see what yours looks like.
