Slack is buying, and shutting down, HipChat and Stride →
Greg Kumparak, writing for Tech Crunch:
HipChat, the workplace chat app that held the throne before Slack was Slack, is being discontinued. Also being discontinued is Atlassian’s own would-be HipChat replacement, Stride.
I’m so happy about this. I use HipChat at work, because the company is invested in all of the Atlassian ecosystem. I’d much rather use Slack.
