Tech Socials, large hackathons, and other tech-community uniting projects. Clicky for more! ** NOTE: Still brazenly tweaking the site, in production.**
Engineering innovation: community and accessibility.
HackerNest Unite is a robust “city GPS” – a unified directory platform and community portal – built to make it easy to navigate an ecosystem’s vast resources. It is a central engagement hub to structure information and resources, as well as to empower stakeholders and decision-makers.
It’s fun getting brand new tech into the hands of passionate hackers. Unlike most other hackathons, HackerNest Construct has ZERO focus on business plan, commercial viability, or monetization potential. Projects are judged based on creativity and the innovative use of technology.
#InRealLife :). Introverts and extroverts feel right at home at our Tech Socials. Everyone’s friendly, chill, and down-to-earth (strict no-douchebag policy). You won’t feel like you have to impress anyone (whew!), so you’ll actually have real conversations and make new friends.
HackerNest is run by a team hell-bent on uniting tech communities. We produce large hackathons, are building a directory/community platform for membership ecosystems, and coordinate the proliferation of our ever-popular Tech Socials everywhere.
Tech Socials are powered by volunteers. In our 20+ cities, Splinter Cells are run by City Organizers – a neat bunch of chill, down-to-earth nerds who believe that supportive tech communities should exist everywhere, not just in hotspots like San Francisco and New York — The last 170 HackerNest Tech Socials have been relaxed and introvert-friendly, and the next ones will be too. You should come; it’ll be fun! We Promise.
Do you also believe in cohesive communities powering economic prosperity everywhere? Volunteer support is imperative to keeping Tech Socials alive! Check here to see where you can help.
Our current base is the Digital Media Zone at Ryerson University.
This should list all the events HackerNest hosts. Find the one right for you (there definitely is one!). You can also go to each group’s local page for more granular information. If it still is buggy, blame the internets. THE INTERNETS. Failing that, hit the local meetup group your splinter cell uses.
