Sponsors for our grassroots, community-centric HackerNest NYC Tech Social series - a regular gathering of all factions of the tech ecosystem in the greater NYC area. PwC is a global network of firms delivering world-class assurance, tax, and consulting services for businesses.
Q: What are Tech Social events all about? Who attends? Why?
TL; DR: meet friendly tech nerds, drinks on the house, sometimes free pizza, ultra chill, no dirtbags.
Who attends? Meet new pals. Like h4ck3rs. Hacks. Designerds. Data scienticians. Hardware engineerds. Developers. Venture ¢apitalist$. Venture communists. Entreprenerds. Killer robots. Sapiophiles. Social mediaphiles. Cloud network architects. Writers. Machine learning cyborgs. Artificially intelligent product managers. Accomplices.
This is the fun way to connect with the -actual- tech community. Down-to-earth and friendly: you show up, make friends, hear from quality people. Easy. We're mostly tech folk, but all nice people are welcome. First timer? Expect this (short video).

||► RUNDOWN / AGENDA
6:30pm - register, get drink, chat up interesting people
7:00pm - announcements, SuperConnect*
7:15pm - more delightful conversations
8:30pm - retrieve Amulet of Yendor, high five volunteers, ciao
* SuperConnect gives you 10 seconds to share who you are, who you wanna meet, and one thing you care about. It's simple, quick, and low-stress (yay introverts!). Participation is optional, feedback is universally positive. Come early, don't miss out! Check this one time we crammed everyone into an almost-circle, because all-the-people:
Example: "Hi, I'm Pepito. I do DevOps at Future Shop and wanna find a cofounder for my artificial-crypto-learning app for chihuahuas. Why? Because I freaking love chihuahuas."
Got friends in tech who'd be interested? Bring them along. Tech Socials are even more fun with friends. Everything is better together. :)
Support our grassroots movement, consider helping at the event (we wrote a short blog post on why you should volunteer). Or just skip to seeing what volunteering involves, then fill out the short application. Easy!
