Hanselminutes Podcast 158 - Secrets of Fog Creek with Joel Spolsky
My one-hundred-and-fifty-eighth podcast is up. I was in New York on Monday and I stopped by Fog Creek Software and visited with Joel Spolsky (co-creator of StackOverflow amongst other things.) He gave me a tour, we talked about their VBScript "Wesabe" Compiler and the history of FogBugz.
This podcast also includes a bit of video as a sidecar. I've started occasionally doing what I'm calling Hanselminutes on 9. Basically it's guerilla unedited video of various things when I happen to turn my camera on. The Fog Creek offices are legendary for their attention to detail, so I was sure to get Joel to give me a through tour. Note you can watch the video online, or click "Formats" and then Right-click Save As in any number of formats, including those for portable devices.
Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
