This month, we're graciously hosted by the good people at CGI! 

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).

"HackerNest feels like coming home"

||► RUNDOWN / AGENDA

 

Folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize >> quick announcements, thank sponsors, SuperConnect* >> back to chatting >> head home, exhilarated from great conversations!

New for this months social! CGI will be facilitating an open, roundtable discussion on emerging technologies and their use cases starting at 6:00pm sharp. Be sure to arrive early if you would like to learn more about the following:

  • Intelligent Automation (RPA, Digital Transformation)
  • Analytics / Machine Learning
  • IoT (Internet of Things)


* 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! Here's what it looks like, 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. :)
