I have to give two speeches at CFUNITED, the ColdFusion technical conference coming up in Washington DC June 29th – July 1st. The first is a general keynote, in which I’ll talk about Really Great Products and why the iPod is so doggone popular even though it’s more expensive, and less capable, than a lot of other products that have failed in the marketplace. Also, as usual, there will be jokes, music, and pictures of Jennifer Aniston.

The second is entitled “Project Management the Joel on Software Way.” I’ll mostly be going over The Joel Test, but at the end I’ll leave time for a demo of FogBugz 4.0.

Michael Smith, who is organizing CFUNITED, interviewed me.
