HackerNest Tech Socials are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech community. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch), and brimming with Ultra Smart People.

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram, like us on Facebook, hi-5 us in person!

The typical Tech Social agenda:  

– folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize  

– quick announcements, thank sponsors  

– back to chatting  

– head home, exhilarated from great conversations!  



On April 22-23, we’re partnering with the National Center for State Courts to produce our 2nd annual CourtHack, the US Justice System hackathon dedicated to improving access to justice for everyone! It’ll be at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick (which, just FYI, is in New Jersey).

LIMITED SPACES! Enter now at courthack.org.


HackerNest Tech Socials are Entry by Donation – any amount appreciated, but $10 suggested. No amount is too little! If a cash donation is too restrictive, please join us anyway – just let us know at the door.
