    Get ready for a deep dive into the Austin tech community! We had a great time showcasing our startup at the TechBreakfast, now it's your turn to check it out for yourself: www.builtinaustin.com

    • Bill K.

      Elyse, you're too invasive and presumptive that I'd like you if I only gave you my personal info. At least offer a person a trial ride through your Magic Kingdom as an invisible man.

    • TechBreakfast

      Hi all! Looks like the beginnings of a great conversation! Can we take this one off Meetup so that those who might be interested can join the conversation and those who are not be spared? Perhaps on the Built in Austin Facebook page?

    Thanks to TechBreakfast for hosting, and to everyone for the positive and critical feedback about Protos! I especially enjoyed meeting this new group and presenting at the new venue (not only convenient but nice location and people). I like Cap Fac but IBM was a strong contender. I look forward to other TechBreakfasts in ATX and other cities. A well-organized event and intriguing mix of presenters.

    For those who asked yet didn't come to introduce or reach out to me after the event, please be sure to check Protos out on the web. We have some great new programs launching in 2015. To stay current with us, social media is best. We'll launch another newsletter next year, however please be sure follow us on social platforms and shoot an email to discuss specific thoughts and ideas -->

    Hope everyone enjoys this. I was put on the waiting list due to too many RSVP's. I got to the office about 20 min ago and saw an email stating a position had opened up....which was about 10 after the event started. I'm sure it's a challenge but if there's a way to send that type of email before the event starts vs after that would be great as I would have attended.

    Certainly were extra every-things. Need to track to the no shows and adjust the cutoff. Just count the name labels or count heads. Being agile includes metrics.
