Chat rooms

IRC is most easily visited via webchat. For regular use, it's recommended to install an IRC client on your computer. For persistent sessions so you don't get logged out of IRC when shutting down your computer, an IRC client or a bouncer can be installed on a Linux or Unix server, and run as a background process on a shell account. Universities commonly provide a shell account suitable for IRC to their students and faculty. IRCCloud is a commercial bouncer with a webchat.

Scheme is a prominent member of the Lisp language family. Channels dealing with the family as a whole are included on this page.

Scheme and Lisp related IRC channels are on the Libera Chat network except where otherwise noted. (Libera Chat policies)
