Talk to Me: A Conversation with Twilio

Corey Weathers, Developer Evangelist, Twilio 

Communication software has come a long way in the past couple of decades — thanks, in large part, to the increasingly powerful tools available to developers. 

Corey Weathers, Developer Evangelist at Twilio, has made it his mission to empower people to communicate in ways that work best for them. Twilio, in particular, has led the charge in revolutionizing the tools developers use each day to make these meaningful connections and do it at scale.

In this episode of Decoded, host Sydney Lai sits down with Corey to discuss how he started his career in software development and how he found himself at Twilio. They also explore the evolution of communication apps and how developers’ relationships with the platforms they use have changed.

Other discussion topics include:

  • How Twilio evolved and grew alongside the cloud computing boom, and how its use cases have changed
  • What Corey’s role as a developer evangelist entails
  • The challenges of working across different frameworks, and how Twilio provides tools to tie them together simply
  • How developers’ expectations evolved over the years, which in turn helped Twilio’s growth
