I no longer work at RedMonk. Please see my last post for more info.
I don’t quite understand how someone so geeky can be so interesting but Michael Coté at RedMonk manages it, and with a suitable dash of skepticism too! —Rob “The IT Skeptic” England
I’m Cote’, a software Industry Analyst with RedMonk. Generally, I cover software: making it, using it, and living with it. I cover a wide range of topics in the software and technology world (see below for more detail).
