Thanks to everyone who sent me advice on our new servers. I've updated the document a bit with the information I've learned.

Upcoming Events

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.


Have you been wondering about Distributed Version Control? It has been a huge productivity boon for us, so I wrote Hg Init, a Mercurial tutorial—check it out!

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.
