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? This month, we've got folks from Prodigy Game, Hired, Deloitte, Think Research, PwC, Oracle, Accedo, Mozilla, American Express, Accenture, CIBC, Ceridian, ++, … so if you like myriad interesting people to talk to, you should 101% come hang. Here's 2/3.14 of the crowd doing SuperConnect from last month:
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."
