Wanted to win SendGrid API prize (prize was announced with ~6 hours left in the hackathon)

How it works

Using SendGrid, I collect the emails going to a certain domain, shorten them and send them to my phone number. I can then reply to the text message and an email will be sent to the person who emailed me.

Challenges I ran into

Ngrok being blocked made it hard for me to present my project and to debug it. n

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Worked on a project totally in python -- something I've never done.

What I learned

I learned basic flask development.

What's next for SumText

Make it easier to use for everyone -- right now it is only set up for me to use but I would like to see this tech on a much larger scale so that communication could be much more efficient.
