An international nonprofit building in-real-life community.

Tech Socials, large hackathons, job fairs, and other tech-community uniting projects. Clicky for more! ** NOTE: Still brazenly tweaking the site, in production.**

Hackathons

Community

Tech Communities

#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.

Who we are

Who we are

We’re just a bunch of chill, down-to-earth nerds. We believe that strong, supportive tech communities should exist everywhere, not just in hotspots like San Francisco and New York — so we’re doing something about it. Our Tech Socials are relaxed and introvert-friendly. You should come; it’ll be fun! We Promise.

Calendar

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.
