Keith Casey's Blog:
The Joel Test Redux web2project
November 09, 2009 @ 08:07:33

In this recent post to his blog Keith Casey looks at applying the Joel Test to an open source project he contributes largely to, web2project.

In the last few months or so, it appears the PHP Community has finally found the Joel Test. Lorna Jane spoke about it last month at PHPNW 09 and this week Brandon Savage adapted it for web development. While I'd love to point out the fact that I've been writing about the Joel Test for years and even have the "Joel On Software" book on the required reading list for Blue Parabola staff... but I digress...

Keith looks at the different parts of the test - from making shippable software to good unit tests to creating a good build process - and compares them to the current state of web2project. He mainly focuses on the question of "Can you make a shippable version of your software in one step?"
