HipChat Getting Stared

Posted on Wednesday, August 27, 2014

This guide will get you the very first steps in setting up HipChat and not much more (I want to keep it simple)

What is HipChat

HipChat is a service from Atlassian.  Their website is at https://www.hipchat.com/   [1]. 

From their own page

HipChat launched in 2010 to give companies and teams a chat service that was built just for them. We wanted to combine the power of group chat and the simplicity of consumer IM services with the administrative controls that companies need.

The HipChat WebApp opens and a few messages are auto sent to you.
