Just a periodic reminder that there is an IRC Channel: #Juce on Freenode. 13 online at time of writing.
You can join straight from the web https://webchat.freenode.net/ but it is much nicer to have an IRC client (I use Limechat on OSX and set it to autojoin).
I think IRC complements forums nicely. Being transitory, it doesn’t cause clutter. So it’s good for general conversation / banter.
Also it’s especially good for beginners – when you are starting out you have a million questions. If each one requires posting on the forum and waiting for someone to get back to you, it’s really heavy going.
PS I’ve put a bot in the channel that announces:
- Stack Overflow activity tagged “JUCE”
- Forum activity
- GitHub commits
- Activity on JUCE’s Youtube channel
