Fog Creek Copilot
Fog Creek Software is a software company specializing in project management tools. Its main products are FogBugz, a web-based project management tool; Fog Creek Copilot, a remote assistance tool, CityDesk; a desktop-based content management system; Kiln, a source control and code review tool built around Mercurial; and Trello, a collaborative project management hosted web application.
Based in New York City, Fog Creek was founded in 2000 as a consulting company by Joel Spolsky and Michael Pryor. As the consulting market started to dry up due to the collapse of the Dot-com bubble, Fog Creek moved to a product-based business, releasing FogBugz and CityDesk in 2001. In 2005, Fog Creek released Fog Creek Copilot, along with a documentary detailing the development process of the interns who created it.
One of the company's goals is to make the best programming work space possible. Its first large office, in Midtown Manhattan, was custom designed by architect Roy Leone. It featured angled walls to allow programmers a window next to their computer monitor to reduce eye strain. Fog Creek's new offices, located in the Financial District of Manhattan have been similarly designed, this time with adjustable height desks, a library, and fully stocked kitchen.
