The last few days before shipping a product should be extremely quiet, as the rate of incoming bugs approaches zero. That’s where we are now. I’ve been putting the final touches on a new version of Fog Creek’s website (you can see a sneak preview here) and taking the word “Beta” out of the code wherever it appears. We’re likely to go live this week — exactly according to the schedule we set for ourselves six months ago.

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.
