Hello Darren,
IRC is just a text based chat room. Here is a blog post on the TOG
website that will give you some starter tips.

Lots of open source communities use IRC for their meetings and in some
cases their primary way for them to all interact.

G+ hangout.
These are great and very easy to use. A very modern way of
communicating online. But you have to remember Google is not open
source. Not everyone who wants to partake in our community has a
google account or will want to create one. We are trying to lower the
barrow to getting involved with our community.

We you need a hand with getting started on IRC do ask and we will help
you where we can.

Jeffrey Roe,
