Drinks on us. Tech Socials are a fun, relaxed way to connect with local tech - so much so that literally 100% of our growth is by word-of-mouth.

HackerNest (http://hackernest.com/) is a nonprofit community movement focused on strengthening local tech ecosystems globally through unpretentious social events and hackathons (http://hackernest.com/construct/). We’re nurturing cohesive communities (http://hackernest.com/cities/) 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 (http://hackernest.com/cities/) 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 (http://hackernest.com/faqs/for-attendees/).
