Joel on Software

Wanted: Tech Writer

by Joel Spolsky
Tuesday, March 13, 2007

We're looking for a tech writer to update Mike Gunderloy's book Painless Project Management with FogBugz to cover the new features in FogBugz 6.0.

More than just a manual, this book is a great introduction to software project management. Greg Wilson, writing in Dr. Dobb's Journal, said, "I think we'll all be better off if this book will become the standard against which other end-user documentation will be measured."

Mike Gunderloy is busy with other projects, so we need someone to revise the chapters and add about 40% more content to cover new features in FogBugz 6. As the UI of FogBugz has undergone a major refresh, all the screenshots will have to be reshot.

If you're interested in this project drop me an email describing your specific qualifications, and attach a writing sample. Update, 3/20/2007: It turns out Mike will have time to do the second edition, so we're not looking for a writer any more.

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.
