Michael gave some good examples of use cases for automation and actually made me realise I automate many things already that I had not even considered to be using "Automation" but he also enabled me to think about how those smaller Automated tasks could be automated further. I really enjoyed the concepts behind this talk and am already planning to use more automation in the future.
Michael gave a really good overview of where and where not to use automation as well as some pointers on how to know when you should automate.
Made me think about automating more things and the pitfalls that automation can cause in some cases.
When I seen that Michael had written a book on Ansible I was really hoping there would be a decent amount of this talk covering Ansible however that wasn't the case. I think the talk would definitely benefit by including some real-word automation examples.
Not a bad talk. It did feel a wee bit rehearsed, but the talk gave some food for thought and left the audience member thinking about how they can watch for opportunities to streamline repetitive tasks. It would've been interesting to walk through a PHP-specific scenario. All in worth attending, but a deeper dive would've been well received.
