Venue
Free Geek Vancouver

HackerNest Tech Socials 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 and Instagram, like us on Facebook, 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 $10 suggested. No amount is too little! If a cash donation is too restrictive, please join us anyway – just let us know at the door.

SPONSOR:

RBC

RBC is 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. 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 has come onboard as a North American sponsor of Hackernest.

Sponsors make this growing movement possible, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. Please email [email protected] for ways to connect with the HackerNest community!

Free Geek is a nonprofit community organization that reduces the environmental impact of waste electronics by reusing and recycling donated technology. Through community engagement we provide education, job skills training, Internet access and free or low cost computers to the public.


We’re on the lookout for easy to access offices with space that can fit our audience (standing-room only). Please email [email protected] if you’d like to host a Tech Social!

COMMUNITY PARTNERS:

All Day DevOps

On October 24th, HackerNest will be supporting the Live Online All Day DevOps Conference. This is a 24 hour event with 5 simultaneous tracks, 96 sessions and 4 keynotes in 38 time zones! There are featured guest speakers galore and frankly, far too much information to list, so check out this link instead! Oh, and did we mention that the entire thing is free

GDG DevFest Vancouver 2017

GDG DevFest are large, community-run events that offer speaker sessions across multiple product areas, all-day hack-a-thons, code labs, and more. The core purpose here is to choose a track and provide training on it to the participants. We are planning for the event to be between Oct 9th to Oct 15th.
