Hi everyone,

Is there an IRC / HipChat / Gitter / … channel where CommCare devs
hang around ?

Thanks,

Hi Charles,

Sorry for the delay in response on this thread. We had an internal
discussion about whether we do have anything like this, and the short
answer is that we don’t. Keep bringing your questions to
commcare-developers@googlegroups.com! (Hope most of our responses are
quicker than this one!)

Cheers,
Danny

I’m sure that you have more pressing matters than answering this kind of question
so don’t mention the delay, just getting support from you guys is already super
awesome.

At my previous job http://www.d3technologies.com we devs used to hang around an
HipChat room :
https://duckduckgo.com/l/?kh=-1&uddg=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.atlassian.com%2Fs
oftware%2Fhipchat%2F

We would talk to each other obviously, but also would be notified of the build server
status, when a new commit is being pushed into master, etc… That was pretty
cool, but it is all in all a glorified IRC chat. I guess in the case of CommCare
something on Freenode would do the trick.

Anyway, many thanks for checking and coming back to me Danny.

Thanks Charles.

This is definitely something that we’d like to do, so we’ll continue
thinking about it.

Alternatively, if you go through the work of proposing a tool and setting
up an easy-to-access chat room I bet you that some of us devs will be happy
to make our way there. Like any open source project, it will be hard to
guarantee a particular level of responsiveness but it could be worth a shot.

cheers,
Cory

So here it is : https://gitter.im/charlesfleche/commcare

At first, Freenode seemed to be a good place to start an IRC channel as many, many
free software projects host their there. But I’ve stumbled upon gitter.im a few
weeks ago, so why not giving it a go ?

gitter.im is a Chat service integrated with GitHub (for login) and many other
services for notifications : Jenkins, Travis, Trello… It can be accessed with Web /
iOS / Android / OSX apps, but also with usual IRC clients. I tried it with Irssi.

For the time being I host the channel under my own name. If this chatroom gets
traction, I guess the natural evolution would be to host it under the dimagi GitHub
Organization. Not being part of this GitHub organization, I cannot set up the GitHub
/ Travis / Jenkins integration for the time being as I don’t have access to these
repos.

I’ll be on the chat, please come to say “Mingalaba” !

Thanks,
