CANCELED: HackerNest DFW 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.

The typical Tech Social schedule:

- 7:00pm: folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- 8:00pm: quick intro, thank sponsors, quick announcements
- 8:10pm: back to chatting with interesting people and new friends
- 10:30pm: go home exhausted from great conversations

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

About Us:

HackerNest is an international nonprofit uniting local tech communities through unpretentious Tech Socials and hackathons. We cram lots of smart, accomplished people into a room with free drinks. Our relaxed, down-to-earth events attract a diverse and highly technical membership. Strict no-douchebag policy.

    I had to balance the one star rating as it seemed unfair. I hope one day a meeting can occur a bit closer to Fort Worth.

    I'm nearby and was about to head over. Does anyone want to meet up casually for drinks?

    I was bummed to see the cancellation but remembered that I received my new toy in the mail...the beagle bone black! Looking forward to next time.

    Was this originally set/announced for Monday? I had saved it to my calendar via the "export" function and just came back from a non-event. Just wondering, I just don't want to make a trip in traffic for nothing again and I am interested in knowing the nature of the failure mode.

      Joel, the meetup tonight is canceled. Just wanted you to make sure so you don't come out and there's no one there again!

      It was no big deal, just a surprise when I found the Thoughtworks location and the lights were off. I figured a date change early on was the cause. I usually look things up before I go to get the location but I must have missed noticing the date was Tue on the meetup page.
      I'll keep it open for the next time.
      There is an incubator place down on Main St in Deep Elum that you might be able to use as well, but I can't think of the name of it offhand.

    This meetup is canceled due to issues with the venue. Sorry!

    We will reschedule, but do not come out tonight.
