Building A Group Messaging App with Meteor, MongoDB and Twilio

via Building A Group Messaging App with Mongo DB, Meteor and Twilio.

There’s been a lot of buzz around the Meteor framework, and with their adoption of ES6 coming later this summer now is a better time than ever to try it out!

In this post, we are going to build a simplified GroupMe clone using Meteor, MongoDB, and Twilio. The app will serve as an SMS group messenger that will let us create groups of phone numbers and blast a text message to every member of that group. We will also expand its functionality to allow groups and individual numbers to be toggled on or off depending on who we want to receive a particular text.

If at any point you are receiving errors and feel lost, or you just want to run this application without building it, you can obtain the finished source code here.

Otherwise, prepare to explore the Meteor universe.

IoT Python app with a Raspberry Pi and Bluemix

This is an extension/continuation from the blog post on how to create a basic Python webapp.  In this tutorial we are going to go through how to integrate a Python Flask webapp in Bluemix with the Internet of Things Foundation in Bluemix with a Raspberry Pi and two sensors on the Raspberry Pi.  The tutorial also uses Twilio to interact with the Raspberry Pi.

So what does this look like?  Here is a simple architecture diagram.
