New OTW Chat Channel!

For everyone who uses IRC and has been looking for ways to join in conversations with OTW volunteers, look no further! The OTW is now registered on Freenode at #otw-dev.

This channel is a new option for OTW volunteers, particularly those who work in our Systems and AD&T committees, to keep in touch with each other. It will also allow interested people outside the org to meet us! We don’t guarantee that there will always be someone in there, but we hope people will find the additional contact point useful.

Many people who are coders and work in site development use IRC to communicate with other coders and systems folk. We hope that the increased visibility of those volunteers who serve in these areas of the OTW will allow for more collaboration and discussion with those working in similar areas outside of our organization.
