How to automate anything

Back when I used to write code everyday as a software engineer I carried around a particular philosophy with me about automation – if I had to do something more than once, I’d automate it.

I’ve used automation strategies to implement technologies that have saved (and generated) millions of dollars and evolved entire workflows for countless firms.

However, for people that don’t have a hardcore technology background (like me), it might be less obvious how these technologies can help them.
