Joel on Software – Hitting the High Notes

I've been reading Joel On Software for a while now, and loving it.  However, I enjoyed this post
more than usual and I just can't quell the urge to blog about it. 
It's just a great essay getting to the point of passion and the
importance of design and quality in software development.  Plus,
it gave me flashbacks to CS323 (that's right, I feel cooler by
association, I'm not ashamed of it) and some of the most difficult
programming I'll ever do — web application development is so simple in

Also, this is a great quote:

in-house software is rarely important enough to justify hiring rock
stars. Nobody hires Dolly Parton to sing at weddings. That's why the
most satisfying careers, if you're a software developer, are at actual
software companies, not doing IT for some bank.

I tagged this article as “awesome” on my — enough said.
