Drinks on us. That's right: free beer/(possibly wine)/water.
This time I would like to try something a little different. We're going to do it on a Friday! Yay! (Keep in mind that we still expect people to be drink responsibly and keep it to a minimum).
We would like to invite members to come on out and have a drink and socialize with like minded people.
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:
- 7:00pm: folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- 8:30pm: quick intro, thank sponsors, quick announcements
- 9:10pm: back to chatting with interesting people and new friends
- 10:30pm: 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.
