Redefining Incredible; redefining Search

A different kind of Swag

This month Algolia attended & exhibited at Twilio SIGNAL, where we met with the great Twilio community, learned about Twilio's latest announcements & features, and even co-hosted an API Hour (which can be pronounced 'happy hour' if you really stretch it) with our friends at & Auth0. At SIGNAL, we took a different approach to giving out swag - instead of new socks or fidget cubes, for every awesome person we met on our stand, we made a $10 donation on their behalf to WomenWhoCode.
