Humbug is Brisbane's Unix support group, able to help with questions you may have about Open Source software, such as Linux, Ubuntu, BSD, Inkscape and many others. Humbug was founded more than fifteen years ago when the first Unix systems were made available to students at the University of Queensland and has been helping students and professionals ever since. Humbug has already helped Edge members with Open Source questions.

Hackerscape Brisbane is the local office of the worldwide Hackerspace movement, dedicated to making the tools and techniques of working with mechanical and electronic hardware available to all. The Brisbane Hackerspace has a subscription garage in Fortitude Valley where the members share tools and knowledge. While members have personal pet projects, they also work together on things like 3D printers and self piloting aircraft. The Hackerspace has helped out with the Arduino workshop at The Edge.
