Context.IO and Return Path were proud to again sponsor the Inbox Love conference held on October 29th in Mountain View, CA. It was a packed house filled with designers, developers, product managers, startups, and angel investors.
The first session of the day was “It Ain’t Just IMAP: Building on Top of Email in 2014”, a panel discussion moderated by Jared Goralnick from AwayFind. The panel featured representatives from the Google, Microsoft, and Tony Blank, Developer Evangelist for Context.IO. It was an extremely informative session about on how to create amazing applications on top of email. As pioneers in the space, Context.IO is very excited to see both Google and Microsoft making it easier for developers to utilize the wealth of information in email.
There were also great sessions on email security and encryption, design strategies, how to make money in email, and an in-depth demo of Google Inbox app. It was fantastic to learn about incredible companies like Cirrus Insight which has built a number of powerful apps on top of email. The day wrapped up with a five minute lightning round of demos from FastMail, Front, Iterable, MixMax, Movable Ink, mxHero, TouchMail, Virtru, Vade Retro. Each company had their own unique and innovative features to make email better!
