The Wikipedia of Long Tail Programming Questions
“Have you ever noticed how certain questions come up again and again on Stack Overflow sites?”
— From The Wikipedia of Long Tail Programming Questions, over on the Stack Overflow blog.
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 FogBugz, an enlightened bug tracker designed to help great teams develop brilliant software, Kiln, which simplifies source control and code review, and Fog Creek Copilot, which makes remote desktop control easy. I’m also the co-founder of Stack Overflow.
