    I felt the event was unorganized and no one from Gratify introduced themselves or wore clothing that distinguished themselves from others. It was also a bit confusing walking in to the bar who was there for the meet up since it was crowded. It was also unclear how to get the code for the free drink offer.

      Hi Danielle, I'm sorry no one from the Gratafy team (who were in green Gratafy shirts) introduced themselves. With such a big crowd, the team reached out to as many people as they could. if you'd like you can email me and I'll get a code made for you to send yourself or a friend a drink to one of our participating merchants.

    I currently work for a large e-commerce jewelry company by day as their Sales / HR Manager. In my spare time I have been launching my own site following a passion.

    But I DO need a DESIGNER!!!

    Since everyone else is doing intros I am also taking the opportunity to introduce myself and my company Agile Media Consulting (agilemediaconsulting.com). What a great community by the way. Aren't we lucky to live and work here?

    I created this Santa Monica/Silicon Beach based company over 4 years ago to help the local media and tech community with Agile coaching needs and organizational development. No companies is too small to go Agile and to get optimized. Clients of ours include Sony Pictures, Riot Games, etc. and smaller start-ups. I also teach at Coloft and CrossCampus. There is so much money to be saved and if you do not currently use Agile you are probably wasting a lot of time and money. We can help you and also provide Scrum Masters and Product owners trained and supervised by us. Please contact me for more info: [masked] - FYI: I will be at the event only until 6:30 as I am heading to another event to give a presentation.

    I'd be very interested in chatting with the Gratafy team about a potential partnership with Rivalry Games. The ability to "bet" a beer against a friend during a game could be a really cool feature.
