PlateBot is a way to get dinner saved for you when you're on the go. It was designed for MOSAIC Co-op, which holds nightly house dinners and allows its members to request "late plates" be saved for them when they won't be around at dinnertime. The old system to request a late plate was a Google Spreadsheet that members could add themselves to nightly, but this is clunky and difficult when you are on the go. PlateBot utilites the Twilio API to introduce an SMS text message interface for late plating. Now, if wherever you are, you send a text and know that dinner will be waiting at home.
