photoHackerNest Tech Socials are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech brethren. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch, yo), and brimming with UltraSmart(TM) people. 

We believe that strong, supportive tech communities should exist everywhere – not just in hotspots like San Francisco and New York. In 2011, we started running Tech Socials in Toronto, where our monthly attendance grew to over 350+ technologists literally 100% from word-of-mouth.

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: go home!
