Aardvark'd

What a great idea! A movie about the software development process!

Wait... no... that's horrible!

Okay, well horrible to the average everyday movie buff. But I am certainly curious personally, and many people who just starting to work on software will likely also want to see this.

Basically, it's about a group of four interns at a company called Fog Creek Software, a New York software company headed by CEO Joel Spolsky (whose blog regarding software is fairly well-read), working on Project Aardvark., a project to create a web-based remote assistance service that would later become Fog Creek Copilot. In 12 weeks, the four interns had to take the project from design to shipping. Wow, now THAT would be one hell of a fun internship.

I want one. Damn them being sold out already!

There's a trailer. It's short.

PS. Does anyone actually read this anymore?
