Somewhere in the world, there's a conference organizing school, and they must teach you there that all conferences have to be held during March. This month I'll be in California more than New York:
First stop: O'Reilly ETech in San Diego, where I'll give a quick status report on the state of affairs in UI design. At another session, I'll give some tips on usability testing.
Then to Austin for SXSW where I'm on some kind of panel entitled Sink or Swim: The Five Most Important Startup Decisions. Here's a good startup decision: work on your products instead of hanging out at "interactive festivals" in Texas.
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.
