At this month's LRUG we'll be looking at effective automations to help you save time and the best way to maintaining perfect project history! Check it out.
Boring, repetitive tasks, are, if we like it or not, part of our daily routine as developers. We can try to automate them away as much as possible, but what exactly makes a good automation? By looking at a number of common and not so common automations, we'll see how we can make computers do what they do best and at the same time keep us humans in control.
Jan Krutisch is Chief Pizza Officer at Depfu, your friendly dependency update robot factory. He's been infected by the Rails bug ever since the 15 minute blog video and while he’s been dabbling in a lot of things over the years, Ruby continues to be his happy place. While building Depfu he’s still learning new things every day and would like that to stay that way, thank you very much.
