Coté's Commonplace Book - Issue #47
The newsletter is back, for now. This is actually issue #156, but who’s really counting?
New book, free
Since sending out this newsletter I’ve published another book, which you can get for free:
Many organizations are toiling away at their application modernization strategy. Most have created enclaves of digital innovation, but few have modernized the entire organization. Why? They start with practices and technologies before changing the most important part: their organization's mindset.
In his ebook, Changing Mindsets: The Missing Ingredient to Digital Transformation, Michael Coté uncovers what it means to think in terms of products instead of projects, how to motivate people to change the way they work, and how managers can shift their mindset regarding their daily tasks, goals, and staff.
In this ebook, you’ll learn how to do the following:
Rethink how software drives your entire business.
Redesign your organization's culture from the top down.
Shift from thinking about software as a project to thinking about it as a product.
Think and act differently through mindset shifts, best practices, and "thought technologies."
This week we discuss Docker’s new licensing, Wirecutter goes behind a paywall and Serverless COBOL. Plus, Coté explains why open source is like College Football.

My boyfriend told me to stop working. It wasn’t work, and it was great. I was learning something. Completing something. Doing something because I wanted to do it, not because it was the next urgent thing that needed to happen. It felt like work used to feel like. That’s what I’m looking forward to again."
