Occasionally I think about organizing my own conference, but I would just invite people like Eric Sink and Rick Chapman, anyway, so the Business of Software 2007 conference has eliminated the need to do that.
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.
