Our IRC channel

Many Kibana developers hang out on irc.freenode.net in the #kibana channel. We want to help you with plugin development. Even more than that, we want your help in understanding your plugin goals so we can build a great plugin system for you! If you’ve never used IRC, welcome to the fun. You can get started with the Freenode Web Client.
