Simulating Pokemon with SendGrid (and an Audience)

Pokemon demo

Hi, I’m SendGrid’s newest evangelist, Yamil Asusta. I have fond memories of playing a lot of Pokemon when I was young. Blue, Yellow, Silver and Gold. The good old days. Recently I’ve seen a lot of hype around the new games Pokemon X and Y. It is for this reason that I decided to build my first SendGrid API demo around this game I enjoyed so much. How do you play Pokemon with email? The dynamic is simple. For every email the audience sends to the application, a little mail will fly towards the Pokemon performing damage to it. At some point, the Pokemon faints and I will award a winner in the audience I’m demo’ing for a special prize.
