The concept of projects on Spacedecode is no different from the one described above. So there is really nothing new to learn here, only the details on the structural representations of projects within Spacedecode.

More than software itself they represent the interaction of people collaborating to solve specific problems. As such, Spacedecode offers the following functionalities to help reduce friction during human-human as well as human-computer interactions:
