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.

    Looking for a web developer to create an interactive education platform compatible with both computer and phone browsers (I'm thinking HTML5). Interface is everything. Initial project length 10-12 weeks, working in an Agile/Scrum framework. Message me or look for me on Monday!

      Does the format need to be unique? There's plenty of third party vendors for interactive education
