HackerNest Tech Socials (http://hackernest.com/cities/) are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech community. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch), and brimming with Ultra Smart People.
Follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/hackernest) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/hackernest/), like us on Facebook (http://facebook.com/hackernest), hi-5 us in person!
The typical Tech Social agenda:
- folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- quick announcements, thank sponsors
- back to chatting
- head home, exhilarated from great conversations!
HackerNest Tech Socials are Entry by Donation - any amount appreciated, but $5 suggested. No amount is too little! If a cash donation is too restrictive, please join us anyway – just let us know at the door.
RBC recently launched RBC Research, a team which supports RBC’s innovation strategy through fundamental scientific study and exploration in machine learning theory and applications with the goal of developing state-of-the-art financial technologies. RBC is also an active contributor to the Canadian innovation ecosystem, including working with organizations like TechToronto, the C100 and as a founding partner of NextAI, a global innovation program for artificial intelligence related ventures.
HackerNest is proud to have RBC as a North American sponsor!
