Attending an elaborate launch party, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and his computer programmer friends - Big Head (Josh Brener), Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) and Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) - dream of making it big. Instead, they're living in the communal Hacker Hostel owned by former programmer Erlich (T.J. Miller), who gets to claim ten percent of anything they invent there. When it becomes clear that Richard has developed a powerful compression algorithm for his website, Pied Piper, he finds himself courted by Gavin Belson (Matt Ross), his egomaniacal corporate boss, who offers a $10 million buyout by his firm, Hooli. But Richard holds back when well-known investor Peter Gregory (Christopher Evan Welch) makes a counteroffer.

Written by John Altschuler & Dave Krinskey & Mike Judge; directed by Mike Judge.
