HackerNest Tech Socials are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech community. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch), and brimming with Ultra Smart People.
We are honoured to have long time HackerNest supporter, Councillor Norm Kelly (http://normkelly.com/) joining us for this Tech Social.
Helping lead the 6th largest government in Canada and the 4th largest city in North America, he serves as the Councillor for Ward 40 (Scarborough-Agincourt), and serves some serious fire on his Twitter account @Norm (https://twitter.com/norm)

The typical Tech Social agenda:
- folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- quick announcements, thank sponsors
- back to chatting
- head home, exhilarated from great conversations!
