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 (http://meetup.com/hackernest), where our monthly attendance grew to over 350+ technologists literally 100% from word-of-mouth. Sponsors (http://hackernest.com/sponsor_info/) 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 (http://kaboomtech.com/): web and mobile development experts - always hiring talented talent!

Venue:

Google KW (http://www.google.ca/about/careers/locations/waterloo/): want to learn more about Google's largest Canadian office? I hear there's a website you can use to search for that information...

Wanna show off your office? We're always looking for big open spaces with 100+ (standing room) capacity that are easily accessible: [masked]
