Python-powered chat apps with Twilio and SendGrid Transcripts
Chapter: Messaging and workflows with Twilio Studio
Lecture: Welcome to Twilio Studio
0:03 It's time to start building our application,
0:04 and in this chapter, we're going to work with the twilio cloud tools.
0:08 In particular, we're going to go to our twilio dashboard and work with something called
0:12 Twilio Studio, Studio is a way for us to create what you would think a
0:16 largely of as the user experience for the user interaction, that people working with our chat
0:22 application are going to have we will find,
0:24 what messages we send and what kind of responses we allow.
0:28 For example, what kind of cake would you like, about a small,
0:30 medium or large? We're going to be able to check things like they said small
0:33 medium and large. If it's something else.
0:35 Well, too bad that's not the right kind of cake we offer.
0:38 Please pick one of the right options.
0:39 And so, like that kind of work flow we're going to build in Twilio Studio
0:41 But Twilio studio is not the whole application,
0:45 not even close. It needs way more information than we give it,
0:49 so we're going to integrate External API's like what is the menu?
0:53 What is currently for sale? What kind of toppings can you get for a cake
0:56 at Cloud City Cake company. And then once you've chosen your cake,
1:00 how much does a cake like that cost?
1:02 What is a small chocolate cake cost today at Cloud City Cake Company?
1:06 Then finally, once we gather up all the information and the cake that they want
1:09 to order, we're gonna post that over to an API that we're gonna build during
1:13 this course in flask. And that's where we're going to save that to our database
1:18 Tell the Bakers it's time to start making that cake.
1:20 Send them an email receipt, all those kinds of things around that order.
1:24 So we're going to get started building this user interaction in twilio studio,
1:28 and I'm going to start plugging python and external API s into it later in the course.
