Joel on Software

I know, it looks the same to you ... but this version of Joel On Software is actually running on a new server inside the Fog Creek offices.

I've been having a lot of fun (!) discovering all the places in Manila where URLs are hardcoded. Even though we're going to redirect the URL joel.editthispage.com to the new computer, I'd like to get rid of as many hardcoded URLs as possible to make sure the site stays portable. There are zillions of links to static.userland.com, a server back at UserLand, which I'm manually adjusting to point to some machine inside Fog Creek.


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.
