Is there an official Arduino Chat channel somewhere?
-Just curious.


Folks have tried organizing one on facebook. Search there.
Designing & building electrical circuits for over 25 years.  Screw Shield for Mega/Due/Uno,  Bobuino with ATMega1284P, & other '328P & '1284P creations & offerings at  my website.


There is a non-offficial chat channel. Someone invited us to is here a while back but I don't remember the details. Try searching for the post.

I suggest the freenode IRC channel.  This community is awesome.

See below for how to connect.

I would like to recommend a more preferred way:


  • Pick a nick name. Preferably one you will continue to use later as well.
  • In the Channels entry form, type #arduino
  • Ask the real questions that you actually have, since "Is there someone using xyz?" is not productive.
  • Wait until you get a reply...

#Arduino is one of the most active and supportive IRC channels.  The chances of getting little or no help are very small... but you might need to wait more than a few minutes.

To be honest... the T4NKxxx nicks drive us a bit nutty since we have difficulty making sure we are still talking to the same person.


As a follow-up:

If you have questions about code... prepare your question by posting your code to one of the code sharing sites like:
