Posted on (0 Comments)

For Day 3 of this series, I wanted to start diving into an application of Machine Learning. This has long been one of my favorite topics in Computer Science. For this post I wanted to touch upon Natural Language Processing. It’s a field of artificial intelligence (AI) that focuses on the ability for machines to manipulate Natural Language and derive meaning from it. It probably sounds badass because it is.   Sentiment Analysis with TextBlob In particular I want to focus on Sentiment Analysis and mashing that up with Email. In this blog post I’m going to create a quick

Code Challenge: Creating a Black Friday Mashup with Kimono and SendGrid

Posted on (0 Comments)

This is the post for Day 2 of my 15 Days of Code Challenge. In it, I’ll be looking at the Kimono Labs API and mashing it up with the SendGrid Web API. I’ve wanted to play around with the Kimono Labs API for a while, but never got the time. We’ve talked about the difference between webhooks and APIs on the blog before, so you can head there for a refresher. I thought this would be perfect for Day 2 of my blog series. Plus, Black Friday is this week and what better way to show off another cool API

Introducing: SendGrid List Assist

Posted on (0 Comments)

Here at SendGrid we strive to not only help people send quality emails, but to teach and assist them in fostering good, intelligent sending habits. A major theme we see from a support standpoint is the need to regularly update recipient lists. As senders experience bounces, unsubscribes, and spam reports, they should be purging their sending lists of these to make sure they are only sending to their usable contacts. In an effort to satisfy this need, our support team has created a new SendGrid feature to help you manage your lists. We are proud to introduce the new SendGrid List Assist

All an attacker needs to do is take over the domain, not
