We’ve got a full house tonight in-studio for episode 158 of the IT in the D podcast from our Podcast Detroit studios. Our monthly casual networking event is this Thursday at Blackfinn, and we have something of a special request to make of some of our regular attendees for this one. There’s also the usual round up of blog entries and other fun stuff for you to check out…
Our next casual networking event for metro Detroit information technology professionals takes place this Thursday, August 18th over at the familiar stomping grounds of the back room of Blackfinn in Royal Oak.
It’s been a little bit since we’ve been there, so we’re looking forward to getting back to our home base and seeing everyone for a great night.
Details for that event…and all of the others we do…can be found here on the site – http://www.itinthed.com/meet/, on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ITinTheD, or in our Meetup group – http://www.meetup.com/ITintheD/
Looking forward to seeing everyone there…and as mentioned up above, we’ve got something of a special request of our regulars. Bob and I will be attending a wake on Thursday due to the death of a good friend, but even with that going on, we didn’t want to cancel the event because we know people look forward to them and count on them happening. We’re not looking for “oh, you poor guys” or anything, but we’re not really sure of our schedules yet with regards to making it to the event…so we’re kind of hoping some of our regular attendees can help make sure things run smoothly, that connections get made, and that things go well in general. We’re going to make every effort to be there, even if just for a while, but we’re both going to be completely winging it…so thank you in advance.
Sorry for that down note…but, well, if nothing else, we’re always pretty transparent with you and so we want you to know what’s going on, especially since it has an impact on one of our events.
We’ve gotten a little away from recruiters making regular appearances on the show, and so we’ve got Davina from DISYS joining us tonight to talk about what they’ve got going on and how the market looks from her perspective.
Then we have another repeat guest from all the way back at episode 71 of our show, although they’ve gone through a name change since those days. Spellbound, formerly “Magic Book”, will be in to talk about their augmented reality children’s books.
And then we’ve got “High and Tight” in, talking about entrepreneurship, football, and why they’re doing what they’re doing.
…as always, you should listen live to hear it all…and as we keep telling you, you’d do well to grab the Podcast Detroit app for Android or iOS and listen that way. You can find those apps here: http://www.podcastdetroit.com/how-to-listen/ The app was just recently updated to make finding out information about new shows, as well as catching show archives, a lot easier.
The mics go live starting at 9pm, and we hope you join us.
