Michael Coté joins in a (sort-of) Drunk and Retired reunion to talk about Gartner's Hype Cycle, how it affects developers, and how they can actually benefit from understanding it. Coté is an Industry Analyst for 451 Research who helps his clients understand what’s going on in the tech world, what to buy, where to invest and where to start. We also talk reprogramming your brain for empathy, and about the trough of disillusionment in new technology.
