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 schedule: 
– 8:00pm: folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize 
– 9:00pm: quick announcements, thank sponsors 
– 9:10pm: back to chatting 
– 11:00pm: head home, exhilarated from great conversations!
