I spent the day catching up on the Joel on Software translation effort.
There are new articles online in Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian and Iberian), and Romanian.
As my faithful volunteers have learned it sometimes takes me a week to respond to their email; I usually let all the translation-related email pile up and then work through it once a week.
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, which lets you organize anything, together, FogBugz, enlightened issue tracking software for bug tracking, and Kiln, which provides distributed version control and code reviews. I’m also the co-founder and CEO of Stack Exchange. More about me.
