Essential Channels to Join
#owasp is a town-hall of sorts. Here, we talk about OWASP projects in general, quick how-to questions, and what we've been doing in the community lately.
#owasp-contribute is the place to go if you want to help with core and contribute coding work, promotion, translation, infrastructure, and general OWASP community tasks. The rule of thumb here: if it ends up on the owasp.org infrastructure, and you are working on it or want to work on it, then this is the place to talk about it.
#owasp-gsoc is the official OWASP Google Summer of Code channel. Are you a student or mentor interested to participate in GSOC, this is your channel.
