A makerspace or hackerspace generally refer to the same thing. According to hackerspaces.org
, they are "community-operated physical places, where people share their interest in tinkering with technology, meet and work on their projects, and learn from each other."
We think the phrase "makerspace" is more inclusive and friendly than "hackerspace" as the latter often has a negative connotation. There are several makerspaces or hackerspaces in Brisbane. We hope to differentiate ourselves by providing the best quality tools and resources, and by fostering a friendly and engaging community that is fun to be a part of.
Whether you want to call it a hackerspace or makerspace, we think everyone will have a great time and learn new skills. We encourage you to come along to one of our classes or community open nights to learn more and see what all the fuss is about!
