The goal of this group is to eventually create a hacker space in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. This is about supporting a growing maker community that we can all be a part of. Our hacker space will be a social environment where makers can congregate to share their knowledge, learn and build things together.

Hopefully as it grows it will become a center for the development of open source software and hardware. It will be a space open to all people always having open membership. We want people from all walks of life to join. Just because you do not know anything about technology does not bar you from membership.

It will also be a place where members of the greater community can have access to technologies such as 3-D printing and laser cutters. The maker movement also creates an opportunity for disabled people. The huge range of programming languages, computer aided design, social media and access to knowledge gives physically disabled people the chance to take their place in society.
