The top software developers are ten times as productive as average developers. "Ten times." You can't afford "not" to hire them. But if you haven't been reading Joel Spolsky's books or blog, you probably don't know how to find them and make them want to work for "you."

You'll learn: How to create a pipeline of excellent developers using internships--and why this is "not" optional How to build a workplace where the best programmers "want" to work The secrets to reading resumes, interviewing technical people, and deciding when to make an offer

If you've ever wondered what you should be looking for in a resume, if you've ever struggled to decide whether to hire someone at the end of an interview, or if you're wondering why you can't find great programmers, stop everything and "read this book."
