Beginner: get on Internet Relay Chat (IRC)

completed by: An Ha

mentors: Nemo_bis

GCI mentoring, like most free/libre software collaboration efforts, relies heavily on IRC for success. You don't understand why? Come see yourself!

If you have not chatted in Wikimedia IRC channels yet, you can claim this task. You will:

  • choose a non-proprietary IRC client you like;
  • join #wikimedia-dev and/or #mediawiki on freenode and register your nickname (instructions);
  • introduce yourself on the channel (one sentence is enough);
  • do anything else now, but wait at least one hour before leaving.
