Our tech posts are written by our developer evangelists as a way to inform readers about some of the great things they are doing. Oftentimes, this means hacks they’re working on using SendGrid, events they’re attending, or how they’ve used SendGrid with another great piece of tech.

Over the last couple months, we’ve tracked our most popular technical posts, and we’ve compiled them here. Check out what people have been reading and learning about:

1. The SendGrid Ruby Gem and My Mama! by Eddie Zaneski – This introduction to the new SendGrid Ruby library also features a hack that Eddie created to automatically text his mom any time he checks into a new city or state on Foursquare.

2. & 3. Tracking Email Using Microsoft Azure and the SendGrid Event Webhook (Part 1 and Part 2) by Elmer Thomas – Elmer’s been hard at work creating a bout Windows Phone 8.1 app to track email powered by Microsoft Azure and SendGrid’s Event Webhook. Check out the first two parts of his series and look out for the final post coming soon!

4. Double Opt-In Email With Node.js by Heitor Sergent – It’s a simple, but important step that we encourage all our senders to take. Heitor describes how to create and implement a double opt-in email.

5. Young Rewired State & Code on the Road by Robin Johnson – Part of being a developer evangelist means empowering and nurturing other developers. Robin shows how successful a recent event was for him.

6. Open Source Documentation: One Year Later by Brandon West – We open-sourced our documentation a little over a year ago and we’re happy to report that it was a successful decision.

7. Gist Me Please? by Yamil Asusta – Yamil has a new way to create HTML blog posts from Markdown using a tool he’s named Propagandist. Check out how you can implement it, parse your Markdown post, and convert it to HTML.
