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.
