Event Details

The SMS APIfied Hackathon/Conference is an event that will rock the world of SMS Apps!


The event will highlight the shift in focus from the ordinary, usual method of SMS application development-to-implementation cycle to the much faster and simpler API-based development. It will showcase the various advantages that can be experienced by using the Youphoric SMS API, with emphasis on how quick and easy it is now to SMS-enable your app. Never has it been this easy!


With all the advantages in using Youphoric SMS API, focus can now be shifted to creating innovative and useful apps. The simplicity of implementation ensures that developers and non-developers alike will benefit and thus be attracted to app-creation unlike before where most were put off by the complexity of the cycle.


Industry experts will talk about the hugely expanded role that SMS can now play in almost every field of business, medicine, education, social awareness, humanitarian ventures, etc.

With Youphoric SMS API, the possibilities are almost endless.


As a pioneer in using SMS API, Youphoric Labs will show the brief history of transition from the earlier SMS dev-cycle to the new API-based system.
