tin_phone.jpgTo help people connect with each other, we did setup a chat room at last years Atlascamp. 3 month have gone by since the event, but the chat room has still a number of active users and the discussions are not only entertaining, but often interesting and useful.
We thought this was great way for people to exchange experiences and knowledge. Therefore we’ve decided to setup a public IRC channel for the Atlassian community. Hopefully it will help people to connect and get to know each other, so if you run into a problem in the future, you’ll have a network of developers you can ask for advice. Of course your friendly Developer Relations members will be around as well, so don’t be shy and say hi.

How to join?

Use your favorite IRC client to join. Wikipedia has a whole list of clients to choose from. Internally we use Colloquy on Macs and mIRC on Windows computers. Additionally some of the regular chat clients are able to connect to IRC.
If you decided on a client, you will need to following details to join the IRC channel:
Server: http://freenode.net
Channel: atlassiandev
We are looking forward to seeing you there.
