Today we wanted to learn a little bit more about Darren, the developer behind our PHP pre-built library. This is what we found out talking to him:
1) Tell us about you
A web developer from Manchester, UK. Focussing on webbased interactive and dynamic applications.
2) Favorite feature about our API?
The simple REST API has no hassle to start using with a large variety of exising tools and languages while keeping out of the way as to not hinder on any of the functionality.
3) Why using PHP for your integration?
PHP is the most widely used server-side web language and I like re-usable code. This gives it the flexibility with embedding it into a lot of existing web-apps.
4) On scale 1-10, how easy was it to work with the API?
1 being easy and 10 being difficult, I would give this an ease-rating of 3.
5) How long did it take you to send your first SMS?
I was almost drunk at the time of first looking into Nexmo, but it still only took a few minutes to get one sent!
6) Give us 1 line of code that summarize your interaction with Nexmo
$sms->reply(‘Hello, ’ . $sms->text);
There you go! Simply and quickly you can connect your App to Nexmo and reach millions of customers via SMS.
