Joel on Software has been translated to over thirty languages by a worldwide team of devoted volunteers, to whom I am deeply endebted.
The translation effort began in June, 2002. To insure a high quality of translation, we try to have every article copy edited by a second translator.
Can you help? If you are a native speaker of another language, your help translating an article from Joel on Software, or even just editing and correcting someone else's translation, would be greatly appreciated. Please volunteer!
More languages coming soon!
You’re reading Joel on Software, stuffed with years and years of completely raving mad articles about software development, managing software teams, designing user interfaces, running successful software companies, and rubber duckies.
I’m Joel Spolsky, co-founder of Fog Creek Software, a New York company that proves that you can treat programmers well and still be highly profitable. Programmers get private offices, free lunch, and work 40 hours a week. Customers only pay for software if they’re delighted. We make Trello, insanely simple project management, FogBugz, an enlightened bug tracker designed to help great teams develop brilliant software, and Kiln, which simplifies source control. I’m also the co-founder and CEO of Stack Exchange. More about me.
