Chatbots Are Invading HipChat (and Why That’s a Good Thing)
Chatbots! Chatbots everywhere! On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, we visited the Botness Enterprise chatbot conference, held in Austin, Texas last month, to speak with Steven Goldsmith, general manager of Atlassian’s HipChat. Chatbots need messaging platforms upon which to work, and one of the most widely used messaging platforms for developers is HipChat.
