Pencil Code Office Hours

Please make use of the Pencil Code Office Hours, usually every second Thursday of the month at 13:00 Central European Time (CET) or Central European Summer Time (CEST, in the Summer) to chat with the experts informally on zoom:69160607217. All questions from everyone are welcome! In addition, there are semi-regular developer meetings that are being announced on pencil-code-discuss. The last one was on Sept 1 at 15:00 CEST.


Regular updates are also provided in the Pencil Code Newsletter, which appears several times per year.
