Computers & Programming

New Melbourne MakerSpace

Let's get together and talk about everything computer hardware, programming languages, and operating systems!

There is so much technology around us. It's awesome but often overwhelming.

There is no particular topic - It's anything the group wants to discuss.

Want to try installing Mint Linux?
Build a web app using Vue?
Install a new hard drive to make your pc faster?
Need to learn how databases work?
etc. etc. etc.

Hosted by Tony Bellomo who serves as the Technical Director of Innovation at a global consulting company.

No computer topic too small or too big - Let's share our knowledge and learn from each other.

Any age, any knowledge level
