The Garage is a freeform work space where Microsoft employees, interns, schools and community groups can find the tools and training they need to launch products and learn skills. The new space is meant to be a community where Microsoft employees can simply make things happen with no pressure to deliver results; as a “maker space” it includes 3D printers, a laser cutter, design tools, a workbench and other equipment to support creative projects.
The Garage is not just about using the space, but also about engaging with our employees and our engineers - where local organizations who want to host hackathons at The Garage, can do so in conjunction with Microsoft employees.
