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? 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).

||► RUNDOWN / AGENDA
6:00pm - register, get drink, chat up interesting people
6:40pm - announcements, SuperConnect*
6:55pm - more delightful conversations
8:59pm - retrieve Amulet of Yendor, high five volunteers, ciao
* SuperConnect is a new, hyper-efficient thing we created to help you meet exactly who you want. You get 10 seconds to share who you are, who you want to meet, and one thing you care about. Simple, effective, and too quick to feel nervous (great for introverts). Participation optional, feedback is universally positive. Don't miss this.
Example: "Hi, I'm Pepito. I do DevOps at Future Shop and wanna find a cofounder for my AI-crypto-ML app for chihuahuas. Why? Because I freaking love chihuahuas."
* Sponsors may provide friendly mentors to share career/professional advice. Pretty snazz if you're looking to improve your world.
Got friends in tech who'd be interested? Bring them along. Tech Socials are even more fun with friends. Everything is better together. :)
