Here at Twilio, we’re no strangers to SendGrid. In fact, we’re basically BFFs with them! We both provide awesome APIs and are both sponsors of API Hack Day. If you’re unfamiliar, API Hack Day brings developers together for an all-day coding fest focused on building apps with APIs. Developers of all experience levels can share ideas, collaborate on projects, start new ventures and discover about great tools and new APIs to play with. Lucky for us, SendGrid offered to become a Gold Sponsor for the Twilio Conference!
We’re huge fans, especially because their APIs are so easy to work with. For the uninitiated, SendGrid’s cloud-based email infrastructure “relieves businesses of the cost and complexity of maintaining custom email systems.” SendGrid is reliable and scalable, and they offer real-time analytics along with flexible APIs that make custom integration easy. SendGrid provides more than just APIs for sending and receiving email, though. They’re experts on maximizing deliverability, a challenging prospect in the current environment.
