Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween, but now it’s time to get some updates out there and start talking about our upcoming events, some big news on the Podcast Detroit front, our live broadcast tonight, and more. Of course we’ve also got some blog entries for you to read, past episodes to catch up on, the usual nonsense on our Facebook page…
As always, we start with our next upcoming in-person event.
Our next casual networking social will be taking place on Thursday, November 17th at the Firebird Tavern downtown. We’ll be upstairs again, and we’ve come to really like this venue, so we hope to see you there.
Start time is 5pm, and there are no cover charges, no speeches, no sales pitches, no trying to get you to sign up for a mailing list that will clutter your inbox for eternity…just good, solid networking with some of the best folks in the metro Detroit information technology community.
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/
…and it’s not too early to start thinking about our annual charity event, either, since that’s just around the corner, too. That’ll be taking place on Thursday, December 8th, over at Falling Down Beer Company.
We’re joined in-studio tonight by Michelle from Comcast with some big news on the services they offer, as well as Matt from Arrow Strategies to talk about the job market, what they see going on in the area and more.
Also on the Podcast Detroit front, we made a really exciting decision last week, and we’re very pleased to announced that in addition to our three studio facility in Royal Oak, we’re going to be opening up a new studio in downtown Detroit.
For details, please see our announcement at http://www.podcastdetroit.com/podcast-detroit-expands-opens-studio-downtown/
On the blogs front, we have quite a few that have bubbled up in recent weeks…
