HackerNest Tech Socials (http://hackernest.com/cities/) 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 announcements, thank sponsors
- 9:10pm: back to chatting
- 11:00pm: go home!
