Joel posted a blog related to how to hire the great programmers. One of his key points is building comfortable workspaces.

I believe every programmer loves the workspace like Google and Fog Creek. The workspace of Google has been very famous due to its French chef, gymnasium and big sofas. Why is Fog Creek? It’s the company created by Joel, he also practiced his theory on his company. Ruan YiFeng posted a blog for it. I bet you would envy the guys working in that office.

How about the workspace of the office in Salzburg? Let me show some pictures.
