Q: What are Tech Social events all about? Who attends? Why?
TL; DR: meet friendly tech nerds, free pizza and booze (depending on host), ultra chill, no dirtbags.
Who attends? All sorts of interesting people from all the parts of the tech community … so if you like chatting up interesting people, you should 100% come hang. Here's what the crowd generally looks like:
Rundown / Agenda
7:00pm - register, get drink, chat up interesting people
7:40pm - announcements, SuperConnect*
7:55pm - more delightful conversations
9:59pm - 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!
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."
