Book cover image: Painless Project Management with FogBugzw00t! Hot off the presses, copies of Mike Gunderloy's excellent new book, Painless Project Management with FogBugz, just arrived in the Fog Creek Office!

This book covers FogBugz 4.0 in detail. I wrote the foreword, which you can read here.

Astute readers will note that FogBugz 4.0 is not quite available for sale yet, but it will be, by March 1st. We're also going to be selling Mike Gunderloy's book on the Fog Creek online store, which will be the first inventory item in the history of Fog Creek, so we'll need to make some changes to the online store software.


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!

Want to know more?

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 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, easy web-based collaboration software, FogBugz, an enlightened bug tracking and software development tool, and Kiln, a distributed source control system that will blow your socks off. I’m also the co-founder and CEO of Stack Exchange. More about me.
