When Lerone Wilson saw the ad for a director interested in doing a film on software development, he was skeptical, to say the least. Wilson’s resulting “Aardvark’d: 12 Weeks with Geeks,” the story of intern programmers at New York-based Fog Creek Software creating a product from scratch to shipping, is now finished, one of the first films to delve wholly into the life and culture of coding.
Film Documents Software Creation, the Fun Way

Without actually seeing the film I cannot comment on its content. But it looks like it could be an interesting film to watch, and to show to students.
It could also be of some historical significance since methods of software development will surely change in the future.
It could find a place in the tech culture just as “Revolution OS” has.
I hope that Fog Creek has dispersed some of the proceeds to the interns as a bonus for a job well done.
Here’s the actual movie site:
I design hardware and write firmware.
I can’t imagine this movie being fun to watch as it can’t be too different from my day at work.
