‘Tis the season for family time, good food, and holiday spirit. It’s a time to reconnect with those who are most important in your life. And, shocking as it is, it’s a time to put aside the rigors of work and tune into the sentimental things in life. Yes, that even means putting down your cell phone and laptop from time to time.

September is a big month for everyone. Students head back to the classroom, leaves begin to fall and San Francisco hosts two of the biggest conferences for the start-up tech community – TechCrunch Disrupt and TwilioCon.
We’re proud to sponsor both events taking place at the San Francisco Design Concourse. And we want you to join us.
Stop by our booth to get your coveted HipChat t-shirt. We call this one “el HipChat” and it’s pretty popular. Swing by early to grab new sticker sheets with HipChat’s most popular emoticons — a sure-fire conversation starters at your next hackathon.
TechCrunch Disrupt is one of the most anticipated technology conferences of the year. At least that’s what they say on their website. We’re inclined to believe them. The agenda is filled with big names from technology and venture capital.
We’re bringing out our own big guns for the event. You can meet one of our founders, hear about our plans for an on-premise version of the HipChat you know and love and much more.

It’s not just the HipChat team at Atlassian that loves Twilio and their talented developer community. Our buddies on Atlassian’s Dev Tools team (Stash, BitBucket) are sponsoring the Hacker Olympics! Keep an eye out for sweet prize packages from them.
Hacker Olympics: September 18
See you there!
We just got back from the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive conference in Austin, TX. If you aren’t familiar with SXSW, it’s a jam packed weekend of panels, parties, great food, and a rare opportunity to hang out with fellow techies in real life. Here are some of the great people we met while giving out the very popular HipChat t-shirts.
This is the third year I’ve been to SXSW. Over the years I’ve noticed an increasing presence of large companies. They’ve discovered that it’s THE place to see and be seen. This, of course, means that all of the actually interesting people will stop attending. If you’ve wanted to attend SXSW but haven’t yet, I’d do it soon. If you’re from a big company trying to be cool, SXSW is played out. Don’t go.
We’re on our way to SXSW Interactive along with a bunch of free HipChat shirts.
Come find us and we’ll hook you up. If you won’t be at SXSW but want a shirt anyway, just leave a comment or retweet this. We’ll probably have some extras.
See you in Austin!
