Mid-Mich Digital Practioners meeting March 23-24, 2017 in Detroit



March 23-24, 2017

The Mid Michigan Digital Practitioners (MMDP) will convene for its next workshop and meeting on March 23-24, 2017.

We have had incredible interest in attending the March MMDP meeting! Registration has closed. Please send us an email to midmichdp-at-gmail-dot-com to be added to our wait list.
We will offer 3 workshops on the 23rd. In the morning will be a “Best Practices Exchange” hackathon; in the afternoon will be “Less Typing, More Fixing: An Introduction to Regular Expression,” and “APIs”. See the detailed descriptions for more.

The workshops and the meeting will be in the Community Room of the David Adamany Undergraduate Library (3rd floor).

Parking in the Wayne State University campus structures and lots is $7.50 a day. [Note: if you leave and come back, you have to pay again.] Luckily there are places to eat within walking distance. People will be best served parking in lots 6 and 1 (details here, http://parking.wayne.edu/info/lot-structure.php).

Our agenda for the workshop and meeting are now available.
For further information, please email us at midmichdp-at-gmail-dot-com.


If you are planning on attending the Thursday workshops at the MMDP meeting next week in Detroit, please join us right afterwards for a joint MMDP and Metro Detroit Archivists League (MEDAL) get-together at the delicious Jolly Pumpkin pizzeria and brewery.
This is a great opportunity to meet and socialize with archives professionals from Southeast Michigan, discuss digital collections, eat some seriously good pizza, and see one of Detroit's most exciting districts. It's next door to Jack White's (yes, that Jack White) Third Man Records, Shinola's flagship store, and other great shops and eateries.
We will be walking to Jolly Pumpkin right after the workshop, and start hanging out at 5:00 pm. The event page is on Facebook, and I encourage you to RSVP if you plan on joining us.

Please feel free to ask if you have any questions about the event, and I hope to see many MMDP-ers there!

What: MEDAL-MMDP Post-Workshop Fun Times Jamboree
When: March 23rd. 5:00.
Where: Jolly Pumpkin Detroit (441 W. Canfield   Detroit, MI)
Who: Members of both MMDP and MEDAL
