Hey, Nerdfriends!

Due to the continuing COVID-19 situation, we will be live-streaming our events until further notice. Our beloved venue The North Door has closed. The folks at The North Door have been a family to us here at Nerd Nite Austin, and our hearts go out to the staff. We are extremely grateful for everything they have done for us over the years. We hope to work with them again in brighter days.

Thank You,
The Nerd Nite Austin Bosses


There’s a lot going on right now, and a lot of things have changed, but some things are still the same. On the second Wednesday of the month (usually), we have Nerd Nite (usually).

Please join us virtually for this month’s talks!

Each talk will run around 20 minutes, with 10 minutes of Q-and-A.

We will be taking questions from the audience via our Twitch live-stream chat channel! You will need a Twitch account to ask questions, but not to watch!

Twitch Channel: https://www.twitch.tv/nerdniteaustin

As always, Nerd Nite is free. If you want to, you can RSVP to our Facebook event, or just virtually show up.
