You Can Compose It: A Basic Programming Guide to Avaya CPaaS APIs and Services

Developing SMS and Telephony Applications with Avaya OneCloud CPaaS

In my never-ending effort to make my job easier, I’ve created another “Avaya OneCloud CPaaS for Developers” video.  This one builds on what I did in the previous two videos.  This time around, though, I take you a little deeper into the development process and show you two applications (and a number of variants) that […]
