The Michigan Technology Network (MITN) is a statewide organization driven to enhance the development of technology professionals through education and networking events with a focus on community involvement.  Our core pillars, which drive our organization and its goals, are Education, Networking, and Community.

Unified by our core mission and pillars, each chapter operates individually and has the freedom to drive their individual goals and events. The individual chapters are connected to each other through the statewide organization, which encourages collaboration, resource sharing, and opportunity creation.

Members join MITN by joining a local chapter. Once a chapter member, you may attend MITN events held by any chapter across Michigan. For more information, visit the website for the MITN Chapter located closed to you.

In addition to hosting some of our standard annual events, like our Bowling Extravaganza & Fellowship Party, There’s An App for That, e-Cycle, and DemoCamp Lansing, we’re starting to team up with other local technology and user groups to partner on events as a way to help connect with and support other great tech organizations in the Lansing area.

 

For our February event on Monday, February 22nd, we’ll be partnering with Mobile Monday Lansing on a great event on the Internet of Things (IoT) in the Mobile World. This event will feature a speaker and is a great event if you’re interested in IoT, mobile, Apps, and learning new tech.

 

Nick Kwiatkowski will talk about utilizing IoT devices such as Arduinos, Raspberry Pis and Intel Edisons with mobile devices and apps.  There will be a brief explanation on what these devices are, and are not, and then a conversation about what these types of devices can provide your mobile platform. Finally, he will touch on the productization of IoT devices that connect with mobile apps. 

 

RSVP for this free event on Meetup.
