One of our core sponsors as well as a really great recruiter that we’ve known for years join us in-studio tonight for episode 104 of our weekly live podcast, our budding network at Podcast Detroit continues to grow as several more shows have been added into the mix, we have our casual networking event next Thursday at Hopcat downtown, we’ve got some blog entries for you to read, funny nonsense on our Facebook page and more. Here’s what you need to know for the coming week…
Next Thursday (August 20th) we’ll be upstairs in the Huma Room at Hopcat at our usual starting time of 5pm. We had a great time there back in May, and so it’s definitely a place we want to do more of these events at moving forward.
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.
As a bonus, we’re being joined by the good folks from SMAMi, the Social Media Association of Michigan, for the event that night. Really looking forward to mixing up the crowd a bit and seeing what good things can happen.
And then don’t forget that on Thursday, September 17th, we’re back at The Majestic Theater for yet another one of our (in)famous Pink Slip Parties.
If you’re not familiar with our Pink Slip Party events, then you should probably learn why they’re different from our casual networking events by reading the frequently asked questions over at http://www.itinthed.com/faq/, and you can check out some photos over at http://www.itinthed.com/meet/photos/.
Like all of our Pink Slip Party events, we’ll be accepting a very limited set of sponsors to help us offset the costs of running the event who get to have an established physical presence at the event, appear on all of our marketing materials and media mentions. Check out our sponsors page at http://www.itinthed.com/sponsors/ and then drop us a note to reserve a spot.
We’ll be talking about all of that and more tonight during our weekly live podcast. It’s episode 104, and we’ve got some good guests on tap for tonight.
One of our core sponsors, Online Tech, will be in to talk about security and compliance, their history and future plans here in the area and more. We’ve also got long-time group member and recruiter Andrea Kress coming in to talk about the overall state of the IT industry here in metro Detroit, what she’s seeing in the marketplace, some advice for those looking and a whole bunch of other topics.
UPDATE: We’re also being joined by the folks from NewCo and the upcoming Windsor Comic Con.
Mics go live at 9pm like always, so join us by listening live from 9pm to 11pm, and then hit us up by 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/.

Also on the podcast front, our Podcast Detroit network is shaping up rather nicely, with about 16 shows already gearing up to go live, and another 10-15 waiting in the wings as we figure out time slots and the best fit. We’re set to have live content rolling every day except Saturday at the moment, and we’re looking to have that fill up shortly as well. We’ve got everything from shows for geeks to coverage of the local music scene, a professional relationship counselor, a show about all forms of hand combat like MMA / boxing / wrestling, and so much more. There’s a little something for everyone, and so check out the list of shows out at http://www.podcastdetroit.com/artist/
