SYDspace is a non-profit group supporting the developer community in Sydney, Australia.

Founded by enthusiasts from the JVM community, the focus is slightly biased, but we welcome most languages and frameworks. SYDspace volunteers organise community events and maintain open source projects contributed to the group.

And here’s a picture of what our logo is based on, in case you were wondering.
