I wrote a blog post about the importance of automating small tasks, check it out: http://artsy.github.io/blog/2019/01/08/automation-encourages-more-automation/
@ashfurrow Another benefit I gain from automation and/or custom tooling is I reduce error rates significantly
For instance, when working on multiplatform projects, I make sure i have a one-click build/test/deploy solution, because otherwise there will inevitably be some step that i get wrong at some point, costing hours of work and a fair bit of embarrassment
@ashfurrow that's inspiring, thank you. Not just the automation part but also all the material you put online. I might fork some of it.
@mishari thanks! Yeah, do it! And let me know if you have ideas on making it better!
