Create a branch. Run the build. SSH into a Docker container. The developer’s day-to-day life is filled with little actions that require us to type particular orders into the command line. They are so small that we often don’t think much of them, but we run them so often that they end up taking an invisible toll; it feels like they’re getting in the way of real work.
This talk will show basic Bash scripting tools to automate most of your common day-to-day tasks, together with some ideas of what you should automate. The content will hopefully ease your work, speed up common activities, and reduce the probability of common (and annoying) mistakes.
Required audience experience:
Basic programming knowledge is necessary. Basic scripting knowledge is helpful, but not strictly needed.
Objectives of the talk:
The main objective is to introduce developers into the habit of creating their own Bash scripts to automate their most common tasks so as to increase their productivity.
