The long-and-short: Tech Socials are powered by awesome volunteer organizers that are passionate about community-building. Is this you?
Bring Tech Socials to your splinter cell! Once a new HackerNest meetup group hits 100+ members, AND 2 to 3 local organizers step up (team up first or just approach us directly), we work with you to kick off your first Tech Social.
Easy as pie. And, our whole team is involved in making sure you start with a blast and make awesome stuff happen! Please read the FAQ on our continually broken/changing site and GET IN TOUCH if you or someone you know might be interested.
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:
- 8:00pm: folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- 9:00pm: quick intro, thank sponsors, quick announcements
- 9:10pm: back to chatting with interesting new friends
- 11:30pm: go home exhausted from great conversations
Wanna show off your office? We're always looking for big open spaces with 50+ (standing room) capacity that are easily accessible.
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 decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
