Get Started with Twilio SMS: Receiving Incoming SMS Quickstart Get Started with Twilio SMS: Receiving Incoming SMS Quickstart The Twilio Quickstart Tutorials are a great place to get started and learn the basics of our cloud communication platform, but I have always found it helpful to not only be able to read about the tools I’m using but also see them in use. This led me to kick off the Twilio Quickstart Screencast series where we will go through the steps of each tutorial to both show you exactly how to get up and running with Twilio. The series will initially be using the PHP version of each tutorial, over time we will work on expanding them to other languages as well for full polyglot goodness.

Beautiful HTML5 File Uploads using CakePHP and jQuery File Upload | Creative Ideal This post is basically a version of this other post , but specifically for fresh installs of OS X Lion, and definitely for those who prefer to use MAMP as their development server.

Advertisement By Jacob Gube PHP is one of the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages that exist today. With over 20 million indexed domains using PHP, including major websites like Facebook, Digg and WordPress, there are good reasons why many Web developers prefer it to other server-side scripting languages, such as Python and Ruby.
