Networking & Dinner

(served free at our premises)

Geek Night is a monthly event to promote sharing of technical knowledge and increase collaboration between geeks in Chennai. It is organized by a passionate group of programmers and sponsored by ThoughtWorks.

It happens on the Last Thursday of every month, unless that's a public holiday or any other unavoidable cause, like an Alien invasion.

We love feedback! If you have any suggestions or cribs, feel free to fill out our feedback form. Don't worry, its completely anonymous.
