9 Articles from Joel On software for Tech Leads

JoelOnSoftware has a bunch of links under the heading of "Tech Lead".

I've read some of them, but for future reference I'll post them here as well:

Hey Joel, if you ever read trackbacks, I want a guest post from you here!

The thing about Joel is simple: It's not like he's the world's perfect manager, and I wouldn't recommentd that you follow blindly anything he says. I woud however recvommend that you read some of the things he writes about this topic because

  1. He writes really well
  2. He makes good points
  3. He challenges you to think

so even if you don't agree, at least you came out a but more invigorated about what you do.
