Insert “dave’s not here, man” Cheech and Chong joke [HERE] since it’s 4/20.
We’ve got some really fun guests joining us in-studio for our weekly live broadcast tonight, we’ve made it through our first month of doubling down on casual networking events and we’re looking forward to doing the same thing in May, we’ve got some blog entries, fun on our Facebook page and more for you…
We’re continuing the pattern of two events per month in May, and to start things off we’ll be upstairs in the Huma Room at Hopcat on Wednesday, May 6th at our usual starting time of 5pm. You’ve heard the rumors, you may have even been there already – Hopcat’s a great place with a huge selection of beers as well as a full bar for those not in a beer mood.
No cover charge to get in, no sales pitches, no agendas, no nonsense. Just good, solid opportunities to get to know some of the best and brightest folks in the metro Detroit information technology community. Looking forward to seeing you there.
I’m sure that, along with our event last week at Blackfinn, will be topics of conversation as we kick off episode 88 of our live, weekly broadcast tonight at 9pm.
We’re joined by two repeat guests and a newcomer as our friends from Penguicon join us again to talk about their event this coming weekend, the guys from Agile and Beyond will be chatting about their event Apr 30-May 1, and a new pair of guests from The Center for Michigan will be joining us to talk about a whole host of programs to further your career and improve yourself.
Mics go live at 9pm like always, and we’ve got clearly some great guests and conversations lined up. So join us by listening live from 9pm to 11pm, and then hit us up by calling 313.462.0107 or firing up Twitter and hitting @ITintheD during the show. We love audience participation, so come along and play with us! Not sure how to listen live? We’ve got instructions for you over here: http://www.itinthed.com/listen/how-to-listen/.
