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 Libera Chat network.
Here are the connection details for joining the network and the MediaWiki IRC channel:
IRC server name: irc.libera.chat channel name: #mediawiki
Given that information, use HexChat to connect to the network and join the MediaWiki channel. Pick any nickname you like. :) Once you have joined the channel, say hello!
