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

IRC client setup instructions[edit]

  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 channel[edit]

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!
