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. Optionally, through the material on Getting started with Colloquy. You can practice using IRC more on your own, later in the day.

IRC client practice: joining the MediaWiki channel[edit]

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

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

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

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