More signal, less noise: how to avoid information overload in HipChat

, Product Marketing | January 27, 2017

ChatOps is a wonderful way to bring all your team’s work into one central location. But the greatest strength of work chat clients can also be their greatest weakness. With everything in one place, it can be difficult to figure out what you really need to pay attention to, what can wait, or what is someone else’s issue entirely.

HipChat for holidays

‘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.

Event Details

TechCrunch Disrupt

TechCrunch Disrupt

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.

Back from SXSW, deep in the heart of Texas

| March 22, 2010

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.
