-A Hackerspace or Hackspace (also referred to as a hacklab, fablab, makerspace or creative space) is a location where people with common interests, usually in computers, technology and/or digital/​electronic art can meet, socialize and collaborate. A Hackerspace can be viewed as an open-community lab, incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where hackers can share resources and interdisciplinary knowledge, to learn, teach, build and make innovative things together.+A Hackerspace or Hackspace (also referred to as a hacklab, fablab, makerspace or creative space) is a location where people with common/​intersecting ​interests, usually in computers, technology and/or digital/​electronic art can meet, socialize, exchange experience ​and collaborate.
