Much real-time discussion happens on our IRC channel, #raku on irc.libera.chat.
We try to be very nice to newcomers, so feel free to join us, and ask any Raku questions you might have.
We discuss questions about Raku, how to install a compiler, proposals for small enhancements to the specification, ideas for new modules - you name it.
If you don't have an IRC client installed, you can use your browser to connect to IRC.
If you prefer to chat on Discord, our Discord server is bridged with the IRC channels.
If you missed an interesting discussion on #raku - don't worry, there are public logs available at colabti.org.
