Hacking the Midwest

Events

When I heard that SendGrid was one of the API sponsors for Hack the Midwest on June 2nd and 3rd in Kansas City, I jumped at the chance to represent us there.  Although I was actually born in Kansas City, it had been nearly ten years since I’d been back, and I was super excited to see what the tech and startup scene had to offer.

Nearly 100 local hackers showed up to demo their skills at the competition.  Teams came in all shapes and sizes –  some from local startups, others comprised of groups of local tech enthusiasts.  There was even a father-son pair that ended up taking home some awesome prizes! … Read more ›

SendGrid Developer Community

Company

Hey there! My name is Tim Falls, and I wanted to officially introduce myself to all who are, for whatever reason, interested in SendGrid. If you’ve followed our company over the last few years, you may have seen my name here and there – on the blog, on the twitters (“^tf”), or maybe even IRL at events around the country.

I’ve been involved with SendGrid since the early days in the bunker and joined the team on a full-time basis in May 2010. After taking on a wide variety of responsibilities over the past 12 months, I have landed in the perfect role, and I’m super stoked to embark on a new adventure. My new title is Community Guy. So what does the “Community Guy” do, you ask… Simply put, I make community happen. I’m the guy you go to when you have questions, comments, or a fun story to tell. I help solve your problems when they arise and make sure the world knows about the cool stuff you’re doing with email.
