Gary Cornell: “While the reason we published the essays collected in “Joel on Software” is obvious to anyone who has read anything Joel has written, the cover of the book has given rise to more than a few questions!”

I’ve gotten lots of great nominations for essays that deserve a place in the next book, tentatively titled “// comment”. It’s going to be your book: the 30 best essays about computer software over the last year… the kinds of things that Joel on Software readers want to read, edited and introduced by me. Check out the list of nominations, vote for the ones you like, and add your own nominations.

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.
