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.
- I love how the name makes people refer to Joel as "Joel on Software." -- DanielBrockman
- That fact probably has more to do with "Spolsky" than "On Software". I bought his book before I ever remembered the name Spolsky long enough to tell it to a friend. -- SteveJorgensen
He likes BigDesignUpFront
, but no one's perfect.
- Specifically, he likes good Hungarian, as opposed to the nonsense people seem to have perpetuated in its place.
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
