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.

Wesley is looking for 2-3 local organizers to add to the team and help start/run this HackerNest splinter cell. Please read the FAQ ( on our continually broken/changing site and GET IN TOUCH ( if you or someone you know might be interested. Together, we can make awesome stuff happen.

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 people and new friends
- 11:30pm: go home exhausted from great conversations

Sponsors ( make this growing movement possible - email us ([masked]) to chat!

We love hardcore nerdcore.
Tech folks, tech events, tech love.
