[Inpycon] Missed call based voting system

I quickly whipped this missed call based voting app together today. I'm 
using Exotel's platform to fetch incoming missed call data, and then 
storing it in Parse. This gets pulled into a Multidict and tallied up 
for votes. It can handle 60+ missed calls per minute (limitation of 
free Parse plan), and doesnt require attendees to have data 
connectivity. Feedback can be collected at the end of every session.

In any case, this is pretty raw and there's no way it will be 
production ready for use for the conference. But if it is stable 
enough, and runs well in trials earlier, it may be a candidate for 
informal voting only during the panel discussion. This would be just 
for audience entertainment purposes if we end up trying it out. If 
there is interest in this, we can consider whether it may be worth 
building this out further for next year's conference.


If any of you would like to help out with this - let me know. By all 
means, fork away and send in a PR.
