Want to experience the Hackaday Superconference from the comfort of your own workshop? Just follow us on YouTube or on Facebook as two days of live streaming talks begin this Saturday morning. This weekend is the Hackaday Superconferencethe greatest hardware conference on Earth. While the Superconference is the most amazing gatherings of engineers and engineering enthusiasts, we realize that not everyone can make it out to our ultimate hardware conference.
Finding hackers on irc
You are invited to the chat room for the event. the Superconference chat right now and be part of the culture of the Hacker Village that springs to life during Supercon. Usually these LoRa projects take the form of a client that talks to a central Internet connected node, allowing a remote wireless-connected device to connect through that node to the Internet. In effect LoRa becomes the network, instead of simply being a tool to access it.
He optimistically describes peer-to-peer LoRa networks as the new FidoNet in his tip to us, which might be a bold statement, but we can certainly see some parallel.
Experts: chat rooms a haven for hackers
If it interests you the code can be downloaded from the GitHub repositoryso maybe this can become the seed for wider peer-to-peer LoRa networks. There have been no shortage of LoRa projects featured here over the years. Recent ones include a handy local LoRa packet snifferand news of an extreme distance record from a LoRa node on a balloon. When it comes to chat, you have many choices. In the open source world, IRC has been the go to solution for chat for many years, and for good reason.
But IRC comes from a pre-mobile world, and relies on clients to maintain persistent connections to the server. Matrix is a standard for passing messages around, and Vector is a chat solution built on top, with support for iOS, Android, and your browser. What makes this solution different is the concept of Homeservers.
A Homeserver manages messages for users, recording them when they are received and providing them to users when they connect. This means anyone can run a Homeserver and connect it to the greater network of Matrix, providing a distributed approach to building a chat network. This means no persistent connections are required, which is perfect for mobile and low power devices.
Anonymous group chat room
On the topic of devices, Matrix is deed for general purpose messaging, not just chat. It should be pretty simple to connect hardware up to Matrix, which would provide a simple way to get data in and out of connected devices. Matrix and Vector are very much in beta, but are definitely usable and worth a try.

Hacker chat rooms
Take part in the Collabatorium tomorrow, live! All are invited to take part. The interface is ready for chat, links, images, code and much more so bring your questions and share your knowledge. On the top of that list have been numerous requests for more collaborative features.
This brand new messaging interface is beyond what we dreamed when we started development. Our goal with Hackaday has long been to form the Virtual Hackerspace, and this is it. Shown above is group messaging for the alt. You can see that thread selected on the left among many other thre in progress.
Hack a chat room
On the right is the list of the team collaborators. Each project on Hackaday. Just want to brainstorm the next big project?
Jump on Hackaday. This is new.
You can help with that and you can tell us what you find to do with it. This feature gives you a pop-up message when the tab with the messaging interface is not active.
This can be toggled globally for all of your chats but we do have plans to configure these s per-chat thread. Thanks to [jlbrian7] for the tip that users of Firefox on Linux need an extension to enable notifications.
Whip out your phone, snap a picture and post it so the collaborators on your team can help out. For now you must have collaborators to enable group messaging and this update makes that simple. Each project has a team list in the left hand column. Just type their hacker name and click the invite button. Casual conversation is welcome, but this is also a great opportunity to find team members for your Hackaday Prize entry.
Hackers chat rooms
More on that soon! While he was organizing a party, [Mike Seese] hit upon the idea of chatroom that would operate over SMS. The chat room is initiated by sending a text to a server. Your friends then reply, and the chatroom is then opened.
He built this wireless chat client that he calls Chatbox using a microcontroller, a character LCD screen, and a keypad that he built himself. The device communicates via an Infrared emitter and receiver.
It pairs up with an Arduino using an IR shield that [Utpal] built. The handheld unit flashes a pair of white LEDs whenever it receives a message from the Arduino. You can then hit the Inbox button and scroll through to read what was received. To reply just type on the keypad the same way you would with a cellphone, then hit the send button to shoot that message back to the Arduino. On the computer side of things the messages are being relayed to and from the Arduino over a USB connection. Early on in the video demonstration embedded after the break [Utpal] shows his Chat Box program communicating via the handheld unit in the same way that other messenger programs work.
