IRC Channels have been refurbished. Please join us.
« on: October 13, 2020, 03:57:05 pm »
The #fpc,#lazarus-ide and #pascal channels on the Freenode IRC network have been refurbished. Two vicious trolls who were allowed to remain for far too long have been banished . FPC developers have returned . Thank you developers!
 These recent changes have enhanced the quality of the conversations in IRC quite a lot.

If you are one of the unfortunate people who were discouraged from coming to IRC by the trolls it is now safe to come back. If you have never been to IRC before, there is no better time than right  now to join in on a  fun opportunity to learn more about Pascal .

These channels offer everything from advanced technical discussions about the fpc compiler to friendly casual chats with other Pascal enthusiasts from around the world.

There are quite a few things that can be done with Lazarus and FPC and nobody knows everything. Therefore, the more knowledgeable people that join the better the channels can be.

That is good news.

I have tried the irc for some days but I prefer this forum. I can read and search past posts.

It is now more than twenty years when we used to talk on a school IRC. That's when I used the nickname Blaazen for the very first time. But IMO forum is more handy for coders, code snippets with syntax highlighting is probably not available on IRC (or it is)?
Lazarus 2.1.0 r64115 FPC 3.3.1 r40507 x86_64-linux-qt Chakra, Qt 4.8.7/5.13.2, Plasma 5.17.3
Lazarus 1.8.2 r57369 FPC 3.0.4 i386-win32-win32/win64 Wine 3.21

Sorry I am not Joanna Carter.

On irc it is possible to share code and screenshots by by using various free websites that share pasted text and photos. Many people give links to their GitHub repositories and useful websites  there also. I am not sure of which websites offer both pasting and syntax highlighting.

IRC is better for discussing things in real-time like trying to solve an immediate problem or trying to find/configure a feature in the Lazarus IDE.

Oftentimes I have a problem that I do not know the correct terminology to explain so it is much easier to talk in IRC about it and eventually someone there figures out what I mean.

I also learn a lot from other people discussing their programming problems in IRC. This knowledge has helped me improve my programming skill. I would have never realized how much improvement my code needed had I not discussed it with other programmers in IRC. For me IRC is not only helpful it is inspirational.

It seems like mobile messengers. Good for people who have time, or are in a hurry, or are home alone, or are anxious.  :-X

I liked ICQ, but it's so rare to see somebody using it these days...

On IRC people use pastebins to post code. Pastebins are websites that allow posting code for sharing on IRC.

ICQ was kind of ruined by the people who took it over. It was a great chat client around 2000.

 skalogryz Thanks for stopping by. You left before anyone could talk to you. Also most people are asleep at this time of day because of the timezone.
We don’t have a lot of people from Asia and Australia.
