Nerd Nite, which actually begins at 3pm, will feature six returning speakers:
- Chris Castro

In addition to the Nerd Nite talks, programming for the event also includes trivia, console games, dry T-shirt contest, Drunk Science/Nerd Off, a silent auction, and a pie baking contest (sponsored by Bungalower).
