IRC client practice: joining the #pycon-practice channel

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

Here are the connection details for joining the Freenode network and the #pycon-practice IRC channel:

IRC server name:
channel name: #pycon-practice

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