Tackling the automation of sending alerts regarding various events through voice calls
What it does
It calls from one number to another and says hello world or your name if given in parameter.
How we built it
I built it using Twilio, curl, TwiML, git bash.
Challenges we ran into
Firstly, couldn't figure out where to run the curl code and secondly got stuck, for about an hour trying to figure out why is my code giving Authentication error, then figured that I had to take the Twilio account SID and auth code within environment variables and not directly copy the SID and the code.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Figured out how to use curl.
What we learned
Git Bash, Curl, Environment variables making in Windows.
What's next for First Outbound phone call using Twilio
Setting up a web application with ngrok and webhooks.
