Inspiration We started by hearing the challenge of a way to improve parking meters and analyzing the history of it.

What it does It enables people to make parking spaces payments by using cellphone SMS. The user sends an SMS where he shares his/her plates and time he/she wants to park.

How I built it Ruby and Parse

Challenges I ran into finish the program in less than to hours, learn how to use Parse

Accomplishments that I'm proud of work under pressure, work in teams and use of new technologies I didn´t know about.

What I learned Parse, Cultural Innovation, Social Innovation, Strategy, turn email into SMS.

What's next for PaCo Invite people to move in different ways around the city.

```require 'rubygems' # not necessary with ruby 1.9 but included for completeness require 'twilio-ruby'

put your own credentials here

account_sid = 'AC30e4ca52ff33aa66bc3072abb67bfd9f' auth_token = '2b6bfbd9232d0bc6809d2d06ffaa47d6'

set up a client to talk to the Twilio REST API

@client = Twilio::REST::Client.new account_sid, auth_token

@message = @client.account.messages.get('SM41209d65e98e41018c542e6027f78794').body messageText = @message.split(".")

aMessage = { "plate" => messageText[0], "minutes "=> messageText[1], #"number" => @client.account.messages.from, "time" => Time.now() }

puts "Plate: #{aMessage["plate"]}, Minutes: #{aMessage["minutes"]}, Time: #{aMessage["time"]}."

Phone: #{aMessage["number"]}´´´
