Description

Do you want to discover what it’s like to be a Nerd at The Nerdery?

Are you looking to take your first step in becoming a Nerd?

Would you like to network with Nerds through coding, hackathons and more?

At The Nerdery, we aren’t just nerds about technology. We nerd out about all sorts of things and we’re always looking for additions to the team. Whether you’re looking for a new career opportunity or just want to check out our office space and make friends, we hope you’ll join us for our inaugural 24-hour Nerd Immersion on Sept. 23. The event will include:

  • NerdQuest: A 24-hour programming bot challenge

  • Hackathon challenge: Build something useful with City of Chicago data

  • Interviews: Onsite interviews with our Nerd Experience (NX, some call it HR) team

  • Mentorship: Sit down with our principal software engineers and talk about your code

  • Gaming tournaments: Compete in new and old games

  • Board games: Play some of the newest games from GenCon

  • Pentathanerd: Experience our very own Nerd Olympics

  • Karaoke: Sing your heart out til the wee hours of the morning

  • Learn about The Nerdery: Clubs, workspace and more

  • Free food and drinks: Noms, craft beer and all the Red Bull you can chug

  • Prizes: Nerdy prizes throughout the night with all donations going to Extra Life

  • Swag: Because we all love free stuff

Stop by our space and stay the whole 24 hours or just a few. Full event schedule here and you can register for events after you get your ticket.

We hope to nerd out with you on Sept. 23,
The Nerdery
