Excellent, practical advice,
This review is from: Smart and Gets Things Done: Joel Spolsky's Concise Guide to Finding the Best Technical Talent (Paperback)
This is great advice for techies or managers involved in recruiting software engineers. Having done this myself for 10 years, I can only agree with most of what Joel says here. He quickly dismisses the "trick question" style of technical interviewing, and provides practical advice not only in how to recruit, but how to retain.
A great, quick guide to an often overlooked area.
