IRC Operator Class: IRC Basics & Working with Network Services, Aliases and More!

This afternoon Myrtti (Miia Ranta) on behalf of Ubuntu IRC Team instructed a class focusing on IRC basics for Ubuntu IRC Operators. Myrtti taught attendees the basics of IRC and how to work with Network Services and simplify basic tasks by using xchat and irssi aliases.

Myrtti’s class is the “first in a series of fun and interesting classes on being an IRC Operator” said Alan Bell of the Ubuntu IRC Council.

If you were unable to attend the logs from the highly informative class can be obtained at the link below:

IRC Operator Training Class

The Ubuntu Classroom is welcoming the first in a series of training classes on Being an IRC Operator which will take place at 20:00 UTC on 12th March.

The class will be presented by Myrtti in the #ubuntu-classroom channel, and they will also be going into another channel to have fun practicing with bans and quiets.

Everyone is welcome to attend, including and in particular our current intake of new operators to the core ops team. If anyone can’t attend and wanted to, don’t worry, there will be logs available afterwards.

If you want to attend, please send your freenode NickServ account name (generally the same as your IRC nick) to or find Myrtti on freenode so that we can get the practice channel set up in advance for you.
