Tech Socials are powered by awesome volunteer organizers that are passionate about community-building. Is this you?
We're looking for more organizers to help bring Tech Socials to Philadelphia!
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:
- folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- quick intro, thank sponsors, quick announcements
- back to chatting with interesting new friends
- 1go 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.
