I live in the terminal. I write lots of scripts (Shell, Python, node js) to automate tasks that would take hours to do by my teammates. Recently, I started automating everything that I put my hands on using Ansile: from pointing DNS server to continuons deployment, provisionning a fully customized infrastructure on the cloud using just a single command!

This is because automation gives you super power, the feeling that what you do help tl increase the productivity, reduce bugs etc.. Simply, once mastered, automation is ausome!

    My motto is to never do something yourself that a computer can do better.

    Being lazy really helps.

    @ahhcrap I had a professor call it "applied laziness."

    Anything I have to do more than once, my mind starts working on "how can I automate this?"
