Posted on (0 Comments)

Next week, Brandon and I are heading to Portland! Beyond enjoying a wonderful Oregon town, we’re excited for OSCON and tons of hacking fun! The big event of the week is SendGrid’s fourth API Hackday on Saturday, July 30, which we are hosting with the usual suspects — Apigee, Mashery, SimpleGeo, and Twilio — and a number of awesome Portland-based companies like Urban Airship and PHPFog. As an added bonus, we welcome LinkedIn to the API Hackday lineup!

Building a Community for Building Things

Posted on (1 Comment)

Hi everyone, I’m Brandon West. I’ve just started working as a Developer Relations Engineer for SendGrid, and I’m here to help Tim Falls make our developer community the best it can be. That means I’ll be hanging out everywhere developers gather – on and offline. I’ll be attending events like hack days, Startup Weekends, conferences – anywhere people are building (or talking about building) cool things! You can consider me a general resource to web developers, ready to help in any way possible.
