HackerNest’s network of volunteer city organizers are dedicated to building strong, cohesive, supportive tech ecosystems while keeping the authentic, grassroots community feel that we have gained notoriety for.
Where do you want HackerNest?
A solid initial tranche of members in the group, 2 to 3 passionate community-builder types to take on the organizing team role, and a few hours of planning per event – that’s all it takes to lead true, in-real-life community the way HackerNest does it. Apply to start HackerNest, join an existing team in your city, or to volunteer at the events.
We Build Tech Communities
Real proving grounds for nerds
Introverts and extroverts feel right at home at our Tech Socials. Everyone’s friendly, chill, and down-to-earth (strict no-douchebag policy). Because you won’t feel like you have to impress anyone, you’ll actually have real conversations and make new friends.
Community is at the heart of HackerNest’s holistic, unpretentious approach to workforce empowerment. It is the foundation from which all great growth and development will spring.
You’ll have fun regardless of your personality type. Promise.
The unique way we run our events makes it incredibly easy for anyone – even socially awkward types – to fit in, hang out, and make friends. The atmosphere we’ve carefully cultivated ‘works’ regardless of language, culture, or country – so come hang with people that actually understand what the hell you’re talking about, tech nerd. You’ll feel at home with us.
Meet people in-person, face-to-face, and feel what it’s like to be human again.
No emoticon can replace the warmth of a firm, friendly handshake. Online is great, but up until the past decade or so, the entirety of human civilization has connected socially and built friendships through in-person interaction. Get out of your basement. Come be human.
