⚙️ Chirp Developer Hub relaunched
We have relaunched the Chirp Developer Hub as a comprehensive resource for developer documentation, tutorials and resources. It features:
- Beginners guides to Getting Started with Chirp
- Chirp technology overview, covering payloads, protocols, events, multichannel transmission, and error handling
- Tutorials on integrating Chirp with third-party frameworks
We'll be continuing to add resources over the coming weeks, with forthcoming docs on security, best practices, IoT, and a nuts-and-bolts "how it works" guides.
We'd love your feedback on it. Please don't hesitate to get in touch or send us a tweet with requests or suggestions.

📨 Open-sourced example apps
We designed the Chirp Messenger solely as a simple app to highlight the benefits of Chirp SDKs. Because of this, we've put the code on GitHub so you can make your own and see how the Chirp SDK works.
