Drinks on us. HackerNest Tech Socials are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech brethren. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch, yo), and brimming with UltraSmart(TM) people.

This one's special. It's still a Tech Social, but folks participating in the HackerNest Construct hackathon on Feb 22-23 will have an opportunity to find a team at this event.

(Come even if you're already in one -- because one lucky participant will win FREE HACKAMATHON entry for their ENTIRE team!)

99.8% sure we're Canada's largest hardware-focused hackathon.

Rough structure:
- 8pm: show up
- 9pm: thank sponsors
- 920: team matchification!

How it'll go down:
1. fill out idea/device/name/email spreadsheet, get a number
2. get 60 secs to pitch then line up against the wall (in order)
(IMPORTANT: talking during pitches probably gets you booted as per our no douchebag policy)
3. brief recap
4. find a team in the ensuing chaos!

HackerNest is a nonprofit community movement focused on building supportive Silicon Valley like tech communities in every city - strengthening local tech ecosystems globally through unpretentious social events and hackathons. We’re nurturing cohesive communities today to empower them with more relevant and accessible peer-based tech education tomorrow. How? We do this by cramming lots of smart, accomplished people into a room with free beer. Our relaxed, down-to-earth Tech Socials became Canada’s largest tech meetups in year 1 (now we're in multiple cities). Our membership - diverse and highly technical. Developers, designers, engineers, social media/business folk, entrepreneurs, investors, etc. gather regularly to socialize, talk tech, maybe hear a speaker, and meet future co-founders, employees, funders, and friends. 

Strict no-douchebag policy.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
