Younger dev generation does not seems to be that fond of IRC.
Gitter has awesome github integartion.
I can post snippets of code and get syntax highlighting, no need for pastebing etc..
I can connect from my phone and read / respond to messages.
It preserves chat history, so if I miss anything I can read that up when I'm back.
That being said I don't mind switching to IRC if most ppl seem more comfortable with it.
I assume we're ditching this so I'm leaving the room!
Good reasons for Gitter. "Younger dev generation does not seems to be that fond of IRC." To be honest - I never used IRC before. Never had a reason why I should do this before. So... what is the IRC channel?
