Joel on Software

Joel Spolsky has had an interesting career, having worked for both Microsoft and Viacom. His blog Joel on Software covers a wide range of things, but his thoughts on software development are pretty entertaining. As an example, The Joel Test: 12 Steps to Better Code is excellent, as is Top Five (Wrong) Reasons You Don't Have Testers.

I particularly liked his programmer's reccomended reading list, which outlines pretty much all the classic texts on software development and user interface design I've ever heard of. It's a good source of brain food.
