Drinks on us. That's right: free beer/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. Sponsors ( make this growing movement possible - email us ([masked]) to chat!

The typical Tech Social schedule:
- 8:00pm: folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- 9:00pm: quick announcements, thank sponsors
- 9:10pm: back to chatting
- 11:00pm: go home!

Sponsors ([masked]):

Kaboom Technologies ( web and mobile development experts - always hiring talented talent!
