I have to give two speeches at CFUNITED, the ColdFusion technical conference coming up in Washington DC June 29th - July 1st. The first is a general keynote, in which I'll talk about Really Great Products and why the iPod is so doggone popular even though it's more expensive, and less capable, than a lot of other products that have failed in the marketplace. Also, as usual, there will be jokes, music, and pictures of Jennifer Aniston.
The second is entitled "Project Management the Joel on Software Way." I'll mostly be going over The Joel Test, but at the end I'll leave time for a demo of FogBugz 4.0.
Michael Smith, who is organizing CFUNITED, interviewed me.
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.
I’m Joel Spolsky, co-founder of Fog Creek Software, a New York company that proves that you can treat programmers well and still be highly profitable. Programmers get private offices, free lunch, and work 40 hours a week. Customers only pay for software if they’re delighted. We make Trello, which lets you organize anything, together, FogBugz, enlightened issue tracking software for bug tracking, and Kiln, which provides distributed version control and code reviews. I’m also the co-founder and CEO of Stack Exchange. More about me.
