About the Gold Coast TechSpace
Gold Coast TechSpace has four areas of focus: co-working, hackspace, education, and incubator.
Our first focus was as a hackspace. The HackSpace is a Gold Coast version of the highly successful Hackerspace model. Hackerspaces are found all over the world, with 1000s of groups in the US and several in Australia cities including Brisbane. We are a bunch of like minded hackers, techos’, tinkerers & professionals making innovative ideas become reality.
Hackerspaces are physical spaces where people can come together and work on their own projects and collaborate with like minded individuals. It is an “incubator for brains”, effectively the inventors shed, but done in a collaborative and open way.
The Space is accessible at different times depending on membership type.
We run many workshops, meetings and events. Many are focussed on particular projects and SIGs. We use Meetup as a focal point to set up meetings and events, to publish pics of these, and also for group emailing.
