Casual Networking Event Next Week in Flint, News, Jobs, Updates and More for 11/2/2011

0

Oh, do we have fun for you.

We’ve got our event in Flint taking place next Wednesday, and then on the 17th we’ve got our event at the BlackFinn in Royal Oak that’s had a charity component added to it with Goodtimes for Gleaners coming to play, 1DevDay is taking place this weekend (and it’s ironically named, since it’s actually TWO days…but who are we to judge?), we threw a discount code out there for you in case you’re interested in Brand Camp Detroit, Bob is currently under siege and cowering in his basement as scores of suburban housewives have ringed his house carrying pitchforks and torches after his latest Don’t Be That Guy went live (and we may or may not launch a rescue mission before the Flint event…we’re still laughing too hard to really be of any help), there’s (gasp) actually an intelligent and well thought out discussion taking place about the Occupy movement in our LinkedIn Group…and a few that aren’t so intelligent or well thought out, and a whole bunch of other fun stuff going on.

And, as it is each week…let’s dive in…

On Wednesday, November 9th, we boldly go where no ITintheD.com event has gone before…Flint.  The Redwood Lodge.  5:01pm start time.  Beer.  Kettering University peeps.  Techworks folks.  Us.  What’s the worst that can possibly happen?

Yeah, don’t answer that.  Completely rhetorical.

Details can be found out on our site http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/ or on LinkedIn http://events.linkedin.com/ITintheD-org-Event-Flint-Kettering/pub/753808

We’ve always told you we’d be honest with you, and so we are – still really not sure how this is all going to play out since it’s a new city, new venue, our first time getting together with the involved parties…might be the most awesome event ever…might be a complete and total train wreck…might be business as usual.  Who knows?  That’s part of what makes us the beautiful and unique snowflake that we are as a group, right?  Right. At least we think so.

So, now that I’ve done the greatest job EVER convincing you that you need to be in Flint next Wednesday, let’s move on to our next event.

That’s Thursday, November 17th in the back room of the BlackFinn in Royal Oak.  Also a 5:01 start time.  Also a casual networking event.  However, we also have the added benefit of Goodtimes for Gleaners showing up and dovetailing with the end of our event, which will likely lead to it being an awfully long night.  In a good way.  So, check out the details here on our site at http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/ or out on LinkedIn at http://events.linkedin.com/ITintheD-org-November-Casual/pub/772750  We’re really looking forward to not just another great networking event taking place, but also doing something cool to help those in need.

As mentioned earlier, 1DevDay takes place this weekend, and the schedule is live if you happen to be going.  It’s all sold out, but you can read about it out here http://1devdaydetroit.com/.  Brand Camp is coming up shortly, and there’s a discount code available if you haven’t signed up yet http://www.ITinTheD.com/2552/this-one-time-at-brand-camp/WordCamp for you WordPress enthusiasts is also in the near future, and you can read more about that out at http://2011.detroit.wordcamp.org/

Can you tell that we’re starting to pay more attention to other events in the area?  Do you think that maybe that might mean that some new stuff might be coming in the near future? Have you read A Scene From the Godfather yet out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/2482/the-godfather/?  You should, because the fun’s just getting started.

Speaking of fun…so why is Bob cowering in his basement?  Well, go read Don’t Be That Person – Sensitive (Bad Word) and find out for yourself.  It’s live out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/2539/dont-be-that-person-sensitive-bad-word/  We always knew that one of us would snap and go off the deep end about Political Correctness…Bob happened to have his meltdown first.

Speaking of meltdowns…LinkedIn…oh my yes, our LinkedIn group out at http://www.linkedin.com/groups/ITintheDorg-Detroit-Networking-Events-IT-91763.  What more can you ask for?  What started with the usual mocking and sarcasm (honestly, if you don’t expect that by now from us, you’re just never going to get us…) changed into the #OccupyITintheD movement (1% of the attendees drink 99% of the beer! #OccupyITintheD !) and has actually now become an intelligent (okay…”mostly”) and rational (okay…”mostly”) discussion about the whole “Occupy” movement across the nation.  If for no other reason than you really should be informed about the whole thing, it’s a good read.  Lots of people make lots of assumptions, and that’s easy to do when there are no clearly defined goals or…ah, you know what?  I’m not diving into that here.  Go read for yourself and dive in.

And, of course, while you’re there reading all of our sarcastic jabs back and forth in between the actually relevant discussion points, you might want to take a gander at some of the jobs that are live in the group right now…and there are quite a few sitting in Career Discussions within the Jobs tab.  Here’s a sampling:
