IRC was the first protocol to chat over the internet. Less used now, it can still be used efficiently to discuss with passionated professionals on any engineering topics.
This is an innovation.world tool as we have not found any equivalent online (!).
We have regrouped here IRCnet, DALnet, EFnet, Freenode & Libera.chat (all being good, but the 2 last ones having more engineering-related channels, therefore particularly recommended to start)
– you need to log separately on each network
+ you have all 5 networks!
+ on each network, we recommend some of the most used channels, related to product design and engineering
