Drinks on us. That's right: free beer/(possibly wine)/water.


We're looking for 2-3 more Organizers to help us run Tech Socials in Calgary. Our team will give you the tools to make sure you start with a blast and make awesome stuff happen!

Please read the FAQ (http://hackernest.com/faqs/for-future-organizers/) on our site and GET IN TOUCH if you or someone you know might be interested.

HackerNest Tech Socials (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wG2TpzEm5o)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 (http://meetup.com/hackernest), where our monthly attendance grew to over 350+ technologists literally 100% from word-of-mouth.

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 new friends
- 10:30pm: go home exhausted from great conversations


Sponsors (http://hackernest.com/sponsor_info/) make this growing movement possible, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. We're always looking for new friends (https://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&to=sponsorship@hackernest.com)! Email [masked] for more info!


Protospace (http://protospace.ca/): Calgary's original, community-based, member-driven maker space.

Wanna show off your office? We're always looking for big open spaces with 50+ (standing room) capacity that are easily accessible. Email [masked] to secure your spot
