What to expect from Twilio SIGNAL

Twilio (pronounced TWILL-e-o) is a cloud PaaS company that works very closely with software application developers as the firm’s technology is designed to enable coders to ‘programmatically’ make and receive phone calls (and texts) using web service based Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).


Twilio SIGNAL – The Developer Conference for Communications is the grand moniker the firm has emblazoned its upcoming London code-fest with.

This is the first time Twilio is taking its SIGNAL conference on the road to London. As with the US event (which earlier this year hosted nearly 3000 developers in San Francisco), SIGNAL London will bring together developers, Twilio customers and partners to share ‘learnings’, ideas and hear about what’s next with the Twilio communications platform.

The event is staged at The Brewery on September 20th.

What to expect

  • Product announcements — with particular focus on Real Time Communications, IoT and creating meaningful/contextual communications.
  • A lineup of customers who are using the Twilio cloud communications platformincluding:
    • ING Bank – Henk Kolk, chief architect
    • Dixons carphone – Dave Ward, head of new technology, innovation and connected home
    • Drive Now – James Taylor, marketing and communications manager
    • Parkinson’s Voice Initiative founder, Max Little
    • Grammy nominated artist, Ryan Leslie

Pat Malatack, vice president of product management at Twilio has commented as follows, “As we continue to broaden our global business we’re excited to bring SIGNAL on the road for the first time in London.  Our conference is aimed largely at inspiring and equipping developers with the information and tools they need to better serve their customers.”

He continued, “One of the pieces of feedback we hear most from attendees at our U.S conference is that SIGNAL is a great place to not just hear about what’s coming from Twilio, but also to learn directly from other developers.”

SIGNAL is largely a developer event, but the firm says that product managers and the C-suite also often attend.
