SendGrid is a cloud-based email infrastructure relieves businesses of the cost and complexity of maintaining custom email systems.
SendGrid provides reliable delivery, scalability and real-time analytics along with flexible API’s that make custom integration a breeze.
The only thing is that SendGrid is a new company and no one yet created a good PHP library for their API.
Today I created one and published it on github.com , in the near future I plan to complete the full library for all of their services.
You can find it here: https://github.com/alonbendavid/SendGrid-Newsletter-PHP-Library

I love Rackspace cloud, I use them for all of my projects.
The only thing that lack with Rackspace Cloud is a good DNS control panel.
Recently Rackspace announced the Rackspace Cloud Domain Name Service (DNS) API
This service will allow customers to programmatically create and manage their DNS records.
I looked for a PHP class and I found php-cloudDNS on github.com. The class is pretty great but misses few functions and US cloud support.
So I forked it, edited it and submitted it here : https://github.com/alonbendavid/php-cloudDNS
Check out sample.php for code samples.

Everybody excited about iOS 4.3 being out 2 days earlier.
But if you are an Apple Devices Developer you would be excited about Xcode 4 coming out of beta.
Grab it here: https://developer.apple.com/xcode/index.php
Xcode 4 is the new version of Apple’s powerful integrated development environment for creating great apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Xcode 4 includes the Xcode IDE, Instruments, iOS Simulator, and the latest Mac OS X and iOS SDKs.
Xcode 4 has a streamlined new interface that integrates UI design, coding, testing, and debugging, all within a single window. The embedded Apple LLVM compiler underlines coding mistakes as you type, and is even smart enough to fix the problems for you automatically.
