The Joel Test

I’ve recently been made aware of the Joel test. Invented by Joel Spolsky, its a 12 step test to rate the quality of a software team. Seems clever, and I’m wondering if it could be useful as an interview tool. If you have any thoughts, I’d love to her them either below, or you can email me directly at barry@barry.ie

Have you ever been asked this at, or prior to, an interview, and what would you think of the company if you were?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Here is the test in full test: The Joel Test
