HackerNest Calgary April Tech Social

Drinks on us. That's right: free beer/(possibly wine)/water.

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.

We believe that strong, supportive tech communities should exist everywhere - not just in hotspots like San Francisco and New York. In 2011, we started running Tech Socials in Toronto, where our monthly attendance grew to over 350+ technologists literally 100% from word-of-mouth.

Wesley is looking for 2-3 local organizers to add to the team and help start/run this HackerNest splinter cell. Please read the FAQ on our continually broken/changing site and GET IN TOUCH if you or someone you know might be interested. Together, we can make awesome stuff happen.

The typical Tech Social schedule:
- 8:00pm: folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- 9:00pm: quick intro, thank sponsors, quick announcements
- 9:10pm: back to chatting with interesting people and new friends
- 11:30pm: go home exhausted from great conversations

Sponsors make this growing movement possible - email us to chat!


This time round, the folks at Accelerator YYC have generously invited us over for a few beers (and drinks!):


We love hardcore nerdcore.
Tech folks, tech events, tech love.

      Hey Sosana, we do it on a Monday in every city, in every country HackerNest is in. It's so people keep their casual drinking to a minimum and so it all doesn't get a bit too much out of hand. If you're rocking a Saturday meetup with free beer though, you let me know and I'll be there!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
