After a long enough test period, JetBrains announced the general availability of Space, an all-in-one extendable solution for team collaboration that covers software development, project and team management and communications.
What exactly is it? This new solution aims to unify tools and information throughout the organisation, allowing for more effective collaboration between teams and the company as a whole.
By providing a platform where team members can communicate, share information and collaborate with projects, JetBrains Space removes silos that are often created within organizations.
Whether it’s developers, designers, management or any other kind of role, Space is designed to allow people to be more productive and to bring out their full potential.

Since the launch of the Early Access Program, he has informed JetBrains, about 25 thousand organizations have joined Space. EAP customers sent over 1.5 million messages, created more than 13,000 repositories, reported more than 38,000 issues and opened more than 12,000 code revisions.
Space, therefore, assures JetBrains, has already had an intense test.
