Is there an official Arduino Chat channel somewhere? -Just curious.
Folks have tried organizing one on facebook. Search there.
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:
... Just a few examples...
Hi How to white line count code?
For anyone coming across this old topic (e.g. in searches): The IRC channel has been moved to the new Libera.chat network. See Arduino IRC channel moved to Libera.chat for details.
