Is the forum software available?
Hi, in the latest article Joel talks about the design decission made for the forum software. I want to know if this software is available for download somewhere?
Nope. It's hardcoded with a bunch of things that are specific to our setup and we don't have time to clean it up for distribution.
Here's a PHP / mySQL version that's very similar to the JoelOnSoftware boards:
This type of software can be created by poorly trained chimps in just a few hours. Go find the PHP (or any language) manual and get to work.
Mommy how much is that chimp in the window?
The chimp is $10 for the first hour, then $5 for each additional hour. You are responsible for feeding the chimp.
I'm interested in the Extreme Programming methodology.
Nope. Chimps are too smart to fall for gimmicks like that.
What if I offered him stock options?
