Stefan has started a series of articles about Wasabi: “During the summer of 2006, we realized that I was a complete dork for naming it FogBasic, so we had a naming contest. Everyone submitted their name suggestions, and we did instant run-off voting to decide the name we would actually use. The final two were Bone Crusher 3000 and Wasabi. As much as I wanted to be typing bc3k into the command line, Wasabi won out.”
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.
