FogBugz World Tour

by Joel Spolsky
Thursday, June 21, 2007

In another month or two, FogBugz 6.0 (now in beta) will be shipping. It's cool. It's very cool. It has a kiwi.

Because I was born without the part of the brain that allows normal people to learn, over time, that Travel is Hell, I thought it would be fun to travel to a few cities around the world and demo it myself, in front of a live audience.

The demo will probably take about 30 - 45 minutes, and I'll leave lots of time for questions -- not just questions about FogBugz, but anything about the software development process, really. It'll be completely free.

Anyway, I'm not sure where to do these. Silicon Valley? Yes. Boston, Seattle, London... almost certainly. But beyond that, I'm not sure. So I set up a little survey. If you're interested in attending, please fill out the survey and tell me where you're located. I'll collate the responses and figure out some good places to stop on the FogBugz World Tour of 2007.


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!
