Joel on Software

Ah, finally, my second book is on its way to the printer.

Yes, it's mostly reprints of articles which you've already read on this site over the last four years. But there are three huge advantages to the book version. 1) It has been professionally edited. I have finally learned to use semicolons instead of commas to separate complete sentences, and somebody smarter than me has sorted out all the "whiches" and the "thats." 2) You don't have to read it on a computer. 3) You can hurl it at your boss or coworkers to make a point, and the impact will be much more powerful than emailing a URL.

I'm hoping it will be out in a month or so.

HyperDev is the developer playground for building full-stack web apps, fast.

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.

About the author.

I’m Joel Spolsky, co-founder of Trello and Fog Creek Software, and CEO of Stack Overflow. More about me.
