HackerNest Toronto Tech Socials

Group Information

 

ABOUT US

HackerNest is a grassroots nonprofit organization that runs unpretentious community events and epic, meaningful, universally-acclaimed hackathons. Our mission is economic development through technological proliferation. Check us out >>> Facebook  |  Twitter  |  Wikipedia

Connecting people is awesome. And community good breeds fab karma. We cram smart, accomplished techies into a room, often with free drinks. Our relaxed, down-to-earth Tech Socials are now Canada’s largest tech meetups and growing quite quickly internationally. Our membership is diverse and highly technical. Developers, designers, engineers, social media/business folk, entrepreneurs, investors, etc. regularly gather to socialize, talk tech, hear the occasional speaker or watch a demo, and meet future co-founders, employees, funders, and friends.

Our formula: laid back atmosphere + free drinks + brilliant people = fireworks. We're not scienticians, but this seems to work. We became Canada's largest tech meetups in a year, before even leaving Toronto. Today we have "splinter cells" in multiple cities internationally. Our goal is to complement and strengthen existing nerd ecosystems – we come in peace. We hail the ideal of a strong and supportive tech community - pretty much anyone that isn't a jerk can be a part of it, so we have a strict no-scuzzbag policy.

Interested in running HackerNest in your city? Take a look at the FAQ. Whoa, longest description evaaar. Need to know more? Here's some answers

RSVP to get a custom, hand-written nametag. This is important, because people without nametags aren't even really people. There, we said it. :)

SOME DETAILS:

********

When: Pretty darned regularly. Check back!

Format: Relaxed. Hang, talk tech, occasionally a speaker, plot to take over the world, etc.

Where: Usually in the large private office of a tech company (have a venue?)

At any given HackerNest meetup, you may find people who are:

developing incredibly snazzy Ruby (most likely on Rails) applications - heady hardcore designer types - PHP/Perl/.NET/Python/django addicts - ...Fortran devs?! - looking for a tech/entrepreneur/new business story to cover - Objective-C experts and iPhone/iPad/Apple product pundits - engineers and managers and CTOs looking for co-founders to join their angel/VC-backed tech startup - looking to write articles/stories about the obscure, interesting, hilarious hacks you've pulled off - totally oblivious and just wandered in because they heard there was booze (!?) - building a top-secret app out of their basement that's going to change the way the world does X; like "Facebook for Squirrels" - scrambling to find a partner to work with on a well-paying contract that's just a wee bit too much workload for the anticipated deadline - heroes, because they're part of the burgeoning community that will reverse all this insane brain-drain - incredibly talented, smart, entrepreneurial go-getters who are absolutely dangerous to the status quo - pretty bloody interesting, because seriously, if they're coming out for drinks ON A MONDAY (or Tuesday, or Wednesday) NIGHT... they've gotta be.

Chances are, you'll fit right in if you're a(n):

software or hardware hacker/h4ck3r (or maybe just a hack) - coder/developer/programmer/designer, UX-oriented, or just like making things pretty - biotech/electrical/computer or basically any kind of engineer - network/network/system/IT administrator - front/back-end specialist - angel investor - demon investor - venture capitalist - venture communist - tech enthusiast - tech/entrepreneur-oriented media/journalist - OCD blogger/Tweeter - bloodthirsty recruiter looking to poach developers - internet mogul - nerd/geek/freak/tweak - entrepreneur - SEO/SEM pro - writer/project manager/business analyst - 1337 individual - etc., etc.


...and aren't a scuzzbag. <3
