Superclass is hands-on training for developers to learn how to use Twilio products. If your company uses Twilio, your development team can't afford to miss it.
As a part of Superclass you’ll experience:
See presentations to bring you up to speed on core Twilio concepts and functionality.
Code driven, interactive discussions
Engage with Twilio developers during product-specific, code based workshops and leave with working apps that you can explore and build from later.
Hands-on exercises with Twilio APIs
Complete hands-on code exercises (like our well-loved, arcade-style game TwilioQuest) to gain practical experience using Twilio APIs.
1:1 access to Twilio experts
Get answers to your questions and learn how to incorporate Twilio into your projects during one-on-one sessions with our experts.
From the code curious to web developer, you will learn through playing TwilioQuest missions, completing CodeExchange tutorials, and watching live demos. Aiming to provide a broad overview of Twilio and building with APIs, this session will be the perfect launching point for you to get the most out of your next two days at SIGNAL.
*No idea what an API is? No worries, we got you covered!
Code-driven Workshop Sessions
You asked for more advanced Superclass content, and we listened! Developers who are curious to experience working code in various Twilio products and would like a code-driven, guided path on how to learn more can join workshop sessions. Each workshop session will explore in-depth what it looks like to build on Twilio. Workshops will be live and interactive, guided by your questions and will feature take-home code.
Closing Ceremony: Special guest and awards!
We’ll close out our time with a special guest and by celebrating our achievements together!
During Day One, we cover Media Streams and Twilio Voice API, getting started with Twilio SendGrid Email API, intelligent IVRs with Twilio Autopilot, and an overview of the Twilio CLI.
For Day Two, dive right into a new line up of developer-focused content, designed to level-up your Twilio skills. Bill Nye makes a special appearance to answer questions from the community!
Who should come to Superclass?
Developers just getting started with Twilio will find SIGNAL Superclass an excellent opportunity to understand the basic functionality of Webhooks and APIs, and learn about all the different products Twilio has to offer. Our kickstart sessions will be especially helpful for individuals starting from square one.
Experienced Twilio developers who want a code-based, guided path to learn about Twilio APIs will also benefit from attending SIGNAL Superclass. We’ll provide a good refresher on all things Twilio, experienced developers can benefit from the 1:1 time with experts, and the more advanced code-driven discussions that will take place during our Superclass product workshops featuring live demos and take-home code.
Why should I come to Superclass?
This is an opportunity to come together with your peers in the developer community, learn what the Twilio platform has to offer, and make your first few API calls with several Twilio products. If you get stuck, Twilio experts are on hand to offer assistance.
Research shows that games help reinforce learning, so spending a few hours playing TwilioQuest is a great way to reinforce your knowledge of the API through hands-on activities and challenges.
Even if you already know everything there is to know about using the Twilio platform, you might still have an advanced question, or want to chat with an expert about your architecture. Superclass at SIGNAL offers a chance to do just that. New this year, we’re adding discussion-based workshops that will dig into the code of our most-loved Twilio products. Come with your specific questions, and leave with answers. If you do manage to stump the experts on hand, we commit to finding the right Twilio expert to answer your question after the event, no matter what.
I came to Superclass last year - why should I come to SIGNAL Superclass this year?
We are always updating TwilioQuest, our educational video game, and new levels continue to be added. It is also a fun way to bring your team up to speed on what Twilio APIs are available, and how to get started with each of them. If you have onboarded new team members in the last year (or are new to Twilio yourself), this is a great chance for them to learn, with support from Twilio experts.
This is your chance to get a handle on the ever-expanding Twilioverse. When you attend SIGNAL you’ll be among the first to hear new product updates and other exciting Twilio announcements. In the last year we’ve introduced new products to the Twilio family as well as awesome product updates. This year’s SIGNAL Superclass will provide you with in-depth training on how to build with new Twilio products like Segment, and help you become familiar with product updates like our brand new Twilio Console experience!
Superclass is LIVE! That means you can influence the direction our Superclass sessions take! We want to cover what matters most to YOU and our presenters will tailor their content based on audience feedback.
If TwilioQuest is a downloadable game, can’t I just do this at home?
You can (and we hope you will) play TwilioQuest at home! There’s more in TwilioQuest than you could ever complete in a single day, so you’ll need to keep playing along at home to learn everything there is to learn in the game. TwilioQuest also expands with more content all the time, so be sure to check back regularly.
Coming to SIGNAL Superclass gives you the chance to work through Twilio API challenges with help and support from Twilio experts. By taking advantage of our SIGNAL Concierge you can connect with Twilio experts one-on-one, to get your own personal questions answered.
I’m not really into video games - should I even come?
Research shows that games help reinforce learning, so we think you’ll surprise yourself. We’ve had many past attendees feel the same way and end up having a great experience, so we encourage you to give it a shot! We’ll make sure to show you how everything works. But if for any reason you’re not able to play along with us, you can still take advantage of 1:1 time with Twilio experts to get your questions answered.
In addition to TwilioQuest, Superclass at SIGNAL 2021 will feature live demos, discussion-based workshops, and plenty of opportunities for networking with your peers! Plus we’ll give you a third option for learning by including take home code and a catalog of hands-on activities to explore. We mean it when we say Superclass is choose-your-own adventure!
