Joel on FogBugz

FogBugz 4.0, FogCreek’s bug tracking software, has shipped. To celebrate this Joel Spolsky (who’s FogCreek’s big boss) published a five-part series on the road to FogBugs 4.0.

“Part I”:http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/FogBugzI.html: deals with why you shouldn’t respond to requests for proposal (RFPs) and the little features that make the difference.

“Part II”:http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/FogBugzII.html: is about feeding doggies and how FogBugz got a spam filter through this dog food.

“Part III”:http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/FogBugzIII.html: how can you easily and cheaply deploy ASP(Active Server Pages) applications on Unix? Write a ASP to PHP compiler!

“Part IV”:http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/FogBugzIV.html: deals with how callories are used, how design matters, shipping and other marketing issues.

“Part V”:http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/FogBugzV.html: is about after-release stuff like winning awards and such.
