Joel on Software

Let's Take Sabbaticals!

by Joel Spolsky
Friday, December 24, 1999

I'm on sabbatical now. I left my last job, at Juno Online Services, last November. Since then I've been travelling, learning, and resting up for the next big thing.

Over the next few months I plan to write several articles about software development in this weblog. Keep an eye out for discussions on managing teams of developers at high tech companies; how to motivate and excite people; strategies for software firms, and more.
Have you been wondering about Distributed Version Control? It has been a huge productivity boon for us, so I wrote Hg Init, a Mercurial tutorial—check it out!

Want to know more?

You’re reading Joel on Software, stuffed with years and years of completely raving mad articles about software development, managing software teams, designing user interfaces, running successful software companies, and rubber duckies.
