The Joel Test

 
The Joel Test is designed for employers to gauge the quality of their software team’s work environment in 12 yes or no questions. It’s not a measure of employee quality, but rather how the organization is supporting the development team’s function. Competition for great developers is fierce, and providing a productive environment will prove fruitful in attracting the best talent.

Give your team 1 point for each "yes" answer. Remember your score and use it to compare your team to others. We will release results within the next couple of months.
