Joel’s gems

One of the most readable, original blogers out there, writing on software development practice and techniques – Joel Spolsky – published an excellent 3 part Talk at Yale: Part1, Part2 and Part3.

You will find out:

– what two computer science courses were most useful in his university studies
(one that was not really a comp-sci and one he decided to drop)
– why is it tough to be an in-house programmer
– why is the quality of many in-house systems so bad
– what is this “quality thing” anyway
– why is specification futile

Highly recommended.
