HackerNest DFW May Tech Social

Drinks on us. That's right: free beer/soda/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


Sponsors make this growing movement possible, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. We're always looking for new friends!



Wanna show off your office? We're always looking for big open spaces with 75+ (standing room) capacity that are easily accessible.

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

About Us:

HackerNest is a nonprofit community movement focused on 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

    Is anyone attending from the western Fort Worth area that would like to carpool? I'm in Keller and will pick someone up or will pay $ to ride with someone else. We can meet at Kroger or whatever is most preferable.
