    Jana Werner, a Head of Transformation

    Slide decks, paper proposals and steering group sessions all take a significant investment to prepare, avoiding “difficult” conversations by socializing and re-socializing in advance of exec meetings, deferring decisions, requesting a raft of meeting minutes to document, correcting, amending and signing them off—the majority of which few people read.... The speed of these cycles determines the heartbeat of the organization.



    This week, Coté talks with Jana Werner about a recent paper she co-authored about changing how a large financial institution does software.


    Check out the paper and Jana in LinkedIn. Also, check out the talk she has coming up at SpringOne Platform.

    Istio-washing, 20 domain names, .docx

    Istio-washing, 20 domain names, .docx

    We discuss: the trademark moves of Google; open source skullduggery; why Slack has the upper-hand on Teams…or not?; and Coté’s growing love of .docx files.


    Mood board:



    I read a lot of Wikipedia when I should be working
    After all this, time people probably think that whatever you’re doing is “working.”
    Did you respond with an emoji thumbs-up?
    I read the email. Thought about it for a few hours. Then thought “I’m just going to archive that email.”
    He’s big in the Angular community - works all the angels.
    Little components that talk with each other over the network. Gotta do a whole bunch of shit for that.
    You don’t sue people who are using it if you want them to use it.
    Service mesh is Greek for “service mesh.”
    Lady Cathemhouse’s Rules.
    Chekhov’s Trademark.
    Couple thousand stores.
    …and maybe integrate with their Active Directory.
    “Federated Slacks.”
    I think I like the Word file.
    No one can poop all over your stuff in a way that you forgot what it looked like when it was clean.
    De-headwind yourself from the COVID.
    I’m mad about The Edit by Default.
    I can’t find my tongs, they’ve gone somewhere.
    I wouldn’t say that I’d recommend it, I’m just saying I enjoy it.

Witty, insightful, and relevant

Always an insightful, witty, and fun. Great at delivering hot takes on industry trends and happenings. Having done my own podcast for some time, it’s hard to deliver weekly content that is consistently strong, but this show seems to be consistently good. Also BBQ.

DeuceIsLoose ,

Way too long

In an hourlong podcast they talked about the topic for about 10 minutes. Lots of rambling off-topic conversation. I had to turn it off and unsubscribe because I couldn’t take it anymore.

Sam Sam Sam Sam B ,

Interesting Fun discussions

I enjoy the dynamic nature of the conversations, with how their combined expertise and working knowledge bring to the fore ideas that really get you thinking.
