1,546

Published on

Nowadays, building a great app doesn't just depend on having a good idea and executing on it. Users have come to expect a certain level of sophistication and integration with the applications they interact with. As if building something new wasn't hard enough, developers are now expected to become experts in handling email deliverability, SMS, performance stability, and social media integration.

Thank goodness for APIs! Join SendGrid's Director of Developer Communications and Loader.io's Sr. Developer Sean White as they walk through some of the essential free APIs that every developer should be familiar with when trying to get their app off the ground.

This webcast will::

Reveal the most essential free APIs and the best ways to integrate with them
Show off creative uses of free APIs
Take a deep dive into free SendGrid and Loader.io APIs
