Reminder! The annual Fog Creek open house is today (Thursday), so if you're in New York, I'd love to meet you in person and show you around.
Come on by between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm to see our offices and meet the Fog Creek team including this years' interns, a.k.a. the caribou, the software management trainees, and me. Bring your boss to prove how private offices, 30" LCDs, and Aeron chairs are possible. See the fish. Drink free wine. Show off your new iPhone. No RSVP necessary.
Fog Creek Software is at 535 8th Ave., on the 18th Floor.
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, easy web-based collaboration software, FogBugz, an enlightened bug tracking and software development tool, and Kiln, a distributed source control system that will blow your socks off. I’m also the co-founder and CEO of Stack Exchange. More about me.
