On OS X, we'll be using Colloquy, a popular graphical IRC chat client.

IRC client setup instructionsEdit

  1. Download Colloquy from this link.
  2. Read through the material on Getting started with Colloquy. We'll practice using IRC in depth later in the day.

IRC client practice: joining the OpenHatch channelEdit

During this workshop we'll get practice using IRC and help each other as we contribute to project in the #openhatch channel on the Freenode network.

Here are the connection details for joining the Freenode network and the OpenHatch IRC channel:

IRC server name: irc.freenode.net
channel name: #openhatch

Given that information, and reviewing the Colloquy overview above, use Colloquy to connect to Freenode and join the OpenHatch channel. Pick any nickname you like. :) Once you have joined the channel, say hello!
