A "good" programmer can outproduce five, ten, and sometimes more run-of-the-mill programmers. The secret to success for any software company then is to hire the good programmers. But how to do that? In Joel on Hiring, Joel Spolsky draws from his experience both at Microsoft and running his own successful software company based in New York City. He writes humorously, but seriously about his methods for sorting resumes, for finding great candidates, and for interviewing, in person and by phone. Joel's methods are not complex, but they do get to the heart of the matter: how to recognize a great developer when you see one.

From the reviews:
"Programming-employment decisions are a critical managerial process. ... Spolsky asserts that 'the real trick to management is to make people identify with the goals you're trying to achieve.' ... Spolsky concludes with the self-designed 'Joel Test,' which rates the quality of a software team. ... Managers, recruiters, and programmers will enjoy this easy read."
