Thanks to everyone who sent me advice on our new servers. I've updated the document a bit with the information I've learned.
A lot of events coming up in March!
On March 16th I'll be speaking at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference in San Diego. It will be somewhat similar to my talk at Amazon.com, which was about why Brad Pitt and the Apple iPod are so doggone popular, while Ian Somerhalder and the elegantly named "Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Extra" are not. Also there will be jokes and music.
The very next day, March 17th, I'll be at Software Development West in Santa Clara, at a "fireside chat" with Alexandra Weber Morales. I'm not sure where the fire is coming from.
And the very next day after that, March 18th, my publisher, Apress, will host an open-house/pizza party in Berkeley (exact time and location to be announced) for anyone who wants to stop by and say hi.
Way in the future, like, July or something, I'll be giving a keynote at the Cold Fusion conference in Washington, D.C. More about that as we get closer.
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.
