Event description


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!

------------------------------Special Speaker---------------------------------

Be Dangerous – Change the world through Creativity + Technology

Everyone creates! Come along to hear Gil Poznanski present what it means to be a MAKER and why you don’t need anything more than your inspiration to find the answers you need to bring your dream idea into life and change the world


HackerNest Tech Socials are Entry by Donation - any amount appreciated, but $5 suggested. No amount is too little! If a cash donation is too restrictive, please join us anyway – just let us know at the door.



Sponsors make this growing movement possible, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. Please email sponsor@hackernest.com for ways to connect with the HackerNest community!



We're on the lookout for easy to access offices with space that can fit our audience (standing-room only). Please email info@hackernest.com if you’d like to host a Tech Social!


All Day DevOps

On October 24th, HackerNest will be supporting the Live Online All Day DevOps Conference. This is a 24 hour event with 5 simultaneous tracks, 96 sessions and 4 keynotes in 38 time zones! There are featured guest speakers galore and frankly, far too much information to list, so check out this link instead! Oh, and did we mention that the entire thing is free?


#GovHackWyndham is a free event that provides the opportunity to connect members of the community with government through creative problem solving. The competition runs over a 46-hour nonstop period held simultaneously around Australia and New Zealand at approved official locations, Wyndham City being one of them.

An Information Night is being held on the 13th of July at Wyndham City Civic Centre. Participants can meet the GovHack Wyndham Team & hear all of the inside info on what’s happening over the competition weekend.


BuzzConf is a family-friendly technology festival with a unique atmosphere - all participants and presenters spend the weekend together in country Victoria, learning and playing with tech during the day and being entertained by live music all night!

The Call for Presenters runs until August 4, so there's not long to get an idea in - but plenty of time to nut out all the final details should an idea from your community be selected for the program. Find out what makes BuzzConf different at https://buzzconf.io
