We’ve super-excited to be part of Over the Air 2016. The Developer Relations team is particularly looking forward to seeing what everybody will build on some new (yet to be announced) communications products we’ll have available for OTA16 hackers to try out. Since our London office is a short walk away from St. John’s in Hoxton, expect to see lots of people in Nexmo hoodies and t-shirts hacking and getting involved. Please say “hi”, we’re a friendly bunch! – Phil Leggetter, Head of Developer Relations at Nexmo.  Follow @Nexmo

Nexmo Workshops

To find out more about the Nexmo tools, be sure to come to Sam Machin’s workshop on Friday at 12:30pm on “I never knew SMS could do that“, where he’ll give a short talk on some of the more ‘interesting’ features of SMS and how you can use them with the Nexmo API on modern smartphones. This will be an interactive session where users will send/receive messages on their phones so bring them along.
Sam will also be giving a workshop on “Building a Voice Application for Amazons Alexa using the Nexmo Voice API” on Friday at 3:30, where he’ll walk though building a simple voice application with the Nexmo API and then an Amazon Alexa Skill to link to the same application. We will be working in Python and using AWS Lambda.
