API Recipe: Pinch of Twilio + Dash of SendGrid


Posted on

Developers, start your laptops!
Twilio and TechStars have teamed up to offer developers of all shapes and sizes an awesome opportunity, in the form of their “Two for One” contest. The premise is pretty simple: combine Twilio with an API or service from any TechStars company to develop the most bad ass app you can imagine.

Your application will be judged by a couple dudes (David, Dave, Brad) who know a thing or two about startups and the innovative development that supports those that succeed.

If you win first place, you’ll find yourself with each of the following shiny prizes:

– Amazon Kindle 3G
– $100 in Twilio credit
– copy of Do More Faster
– an all-expense-paid trip to Boston to meet with four of the TechStars Boston mentors!

Of course, it’s a no brainer that you should use a SendGrid API if you really want to win. And, as you know we have plenty to choose from:
Web API
Event API
Parse API

In case you need a little inspiration, check out the Email-to-Phone app that our team built using Twilio’s awesome functionality. And if you need some help from our devs, feel free to contact us via phone, email, or live chat.

Get all the details by visiting the TechStars and Twilio blog posts.

Now: do your homework, put on your creative cap, and get to it.

Readyyyyyy…CODE!

You have until January 16!

We look forward to seeing what you come up with – whether you choose a SendGrid API or another company’s!
