World Tour - last chance

by Joel Spolsky
Thursday, October 21, 2010

Due to unexpected demand we’ve been working with the venues for the upcoming FogBugz World Tour 2010 (incorporating DVCS University) to find more room. We already have more than 3154 people signed up and in some cities, we moved to a larger venue to accomodate everybody.

That means there’s still room in most cities if you haven’t signed up.

If you come, you’ll see me give a demo of FogBugz 8.0 and Kiln 2.0, and we’ll give you a one hour introduction to distributed version control ... how it works, how it’s different than the version control you know and love, and how to set it up to make your life easier. There will also be coffee and cookies, and a chance to meet Fog Creek people and other techies from your town.

Sign up now, it’s free! Hurry up—it all starts next week. I look forward to meeting you in person.

PS: If you get waitlisted, don’t despair. The night before each event, we will email everybody begging them to cancel if they know they can’t make it, so that we can let in people from the waitlist. What happened last year is that a few people cancelled the night before allowing us to let in all or most of the waitlist.


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!
