“What do you think are the important things students need to learn if they are to become good C++ programmers?”

“I want to find out if there are any interesting tech companies in New York…”

“I’d like to find out about Fog Creek’s shrink-wrap strategy and results to date.”

“Does Microsoft use VSS for their projects?”

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
