This tutorial is based on code created at the [App Developer Conference Conference and Hackathon](http://appdevconf.engagedigital.com) in Santa Clara, CA as a result of about 4 hours of hack time. Thus, it is extremely rough, though it should serve as a good starting point for working with both [AppMobi](http://www.appmobi.com) and the [SendGrid API](http://docs.sendgrid.com/documentation/api).
