Welcome to Nerd Nite Madison!

Nerd Nite is a monthly-ish informal gathering at which nerds get together for nerdery of all sorts (well, mostly presentations and drinking). Nerds and non-nerds alike gather to meet, drink and learn something new.

Entry is free and open to all.

If you would like to be notified of upcoming events join the Facebook group, follow us on Twitter or sign up for the mailing list using the form to the right.

Interested in giving a Nerd Nite talk?!

Almost any nerdy topic is fair game. The only real requirement is enthusiasm! To get the ball rolling, send us a message with a brief description of your idea for a talk.
