HackerNest KL Jan Tech Social

It's 2014 and we're kicking it off a la HackerNest: drinks (and teh tarik, and ice kacang, and cendol) on us. Tech nerds unite!

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:
- 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, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. We're always looking for new friends!



The Purah: Your Space As You See It.

Wanna show off your office? We're always looking for big open spaces with 100+ (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.

    Hi, can i know how am i able to get to the location using public transport.

    January 21, 2014

    • Ho Fu K.

      Hi ZhongWei, your best bet would be to either use KTM to Sentul station or the LRT to Sentul station and you can walk over to D6 which is around 500m away.­

    Transport may be an issue for me. But for others I have Uber discount codes (this is NOT selling).

    • Ho Fu K.

      Hi Calum, the venue is actually close to a KTM Komuter station, not an LRT station. The KTM station is Sentul.

      You can interchange from an LRT line to a KTM line from KL Sentral

      January 21, 2014

    • Ho Fu K.

      Eh Calum, sorry, the venue is actually close to the Sentul LRT station as well.­
