The first Stack Exchange site to make it all the way through the community creation process is now live and out of beta!

webapps.stackexchange.com is a place to get help with web applications. Want to know how to email huge files? How to delete your Facebook account? How to secretly follow someone on Twitter? How to backup Wordpress blogs, ahem, Jeff? This is the site.

(Updated: Only days after launching, we changed the name from "nothingtoinstall.com" to "webapps.stackexchange.com" because nobody really liked that name!)


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.
