For more informal discussions and questions there is a chat room to enable live chat between users and developers. The chat is hosted on matrix and clicking the following link will open a browser window with the chat interface. There is no need to install any software.

We recently begun syncing this chat room with a Slack channel. Contact us for an invitation.

We have also recently begun moving towards integrating PyHC into Helionauts (Heliophysics forum in the cloud). This is another free platform, but an invite is required. See Helionauts’ home page for a list of people to contact for an invite link. Once you’re in, search for the “PyHC” group!
