Here are some resources for keeping up with what’s going on in the Dylan hacker community...

How to Contribute

The Hacker Guide has details on how to contribute to the project.

The #dylan IRC channel

The #dylan channel on Freenode.net is where most of the day-to-day Dylan activity takes place. Since Dylan hackers are spread around the world (New Zealand, Germany, East and West coast USA, South America, ...) there’s usually someone online at all times of day. The channel is logged at http://colabti.org/irclogger/irclogger_logs/dylan so you can always ask a question and then check the logs for answers later.

Freenode also offers web-based chat if you don’t have an IRC client or just want easy and quick access.

To discuss coding issues you can create a gist on GitHub and paste a link to it in the #dylan channel.

Mailing List

dylan-lang@googlegroups.com, also browsable on the web, is dedicated to discussion of Dylan. If you have a question that’s more detailed or doesn’t required the quick back-and-forth of IRC, this is the preferred place for it.

comp.lang.dylan also exists, but dylan-lang@ is the preferred forum.
