Joel Spolsky

Founder of Fog Creek Software, which makes an HTML editor/content manager called CityDesk, and, in many people's opinion, exceptionally nice bug tracking software called FogBugz?. His weblog, JoelOnSoftware,, has lots of great articles on software. He likes BigDesignUpFront: and HungarianNotation, but no one's perfect. He does something similar to XP's PlanningGame - it's more-or-less the prioritization part without the scheduling.


JS has a clean and vivid writing style - a major acheivement considering the subjects. The drawback is when he's completely wrong he is very hard to counter. --PhlIp
