Using IronWorker to Schedule Emails in Node.js, Ruby, and PHP
|Schedule Email with SendGrid and Iron.io|
And what’s even better is he shows how to do it in three languages:
|SendGrid on Mobile Backend Services|
SendGrid put out a nice post on their blog the other day on what to look for with mobile backends.
Kunal Batra is a developer evangelist at-large for SendGrid and did some work with Redhat’s OpenShift platform recently.
In the post, Kunal lays out a simple case for why this platform plus services such as Iron.io, SendGrid, Twilio, and PubNub can make for a compelling mobile backend service. Continue reading “Need a Mobile Backend? Try OpenShift. (SendGrid article)”
Nick Quinlan from SendGrid put out a nice post the other day on a simple app he created to email him daily goals. It’s a short post but with some solid code behind it which adds a lot of value in our minds. (It’s one thing talk about tech but it’s another to turn it into a code example.) Thank you for that, Nick.

Email Your Goals Using Ruby, Google Docs, SendGrid, and Iron.io
The hack, which I’m calling Daily Goals, emails you every day with a selection of your goals for personal growth. It’s written in Ruby and relies on Iron.io to run it every day.

of webhooks using Iron.io and SendGrid.
At Iron.io, we believe strongly that there is a new model of application architectures that is becoming not only viable, but the most powerful way to build your application.
More and more applications will be built not using static servers and direct integrations, but instead using workers that come into existence when you need them and shut down when they’re no longer necessary.
Against most predictions, email has stood the test of time and remains one of the most common and effective forms of communication. This is particularly true in the world of web applications where the flow of information from app to user is constant.
Ruby on Rails is one of the leading stack choices for building web applications, and ActionMailer is the goto MVC method that allows the app to interact with an SMTP server to deliver email. ActionMailer combined with a great SMTP delivery service like SendGrid, lets developers quickly and easily deliver email from inside their apps.
