Making chat hipper with Twisted!

HipChat has been changing what it means to communicate in teams of any size and taking the world by storm over the past 12 months. What you may not know is that Twisted is at the core of HipChat's highly successful service:

HipChat is a hosted group chat and IM service for businesses which uses the XMPP protocol behind the scenes. We use Twisted to power our fully clustered chat server and run many important job queue workers.

Bottom line: we built and launched a successful business on Twisted & Python in 6 months with no prior knowledge of either. It's a very productive environment with great performance and maintainability. What more could you want?
