Let’s get coding! We’ve selected a language, we’ve done some online training, and we’re ready to get coding and automate the first thing we stumble across. How exciting! Aaaaannnnnd STOP.
On the Solarwinds Thwack Geek Speak blog I looked at the “80:20” rule and how to use it to guide where to get the biggest return on investment when spending time coding, then I gave some advice on how to select a task to automate. Please do take a trip to Thwack and check out my post, “New Coder: Stop What You’re Doing“.
