Make Your Life Easier with Scripting
We waste weeks of our lives every year doing repetitive tasks over and over again.  What if you could save yourself all that time by automating things with a few scripts?  Easily translate data, execute multiple commands at once, get your time back to do what really makes you valuable. During this hands-on workshop, Nick Ruffilo will come prepared with a few template scripts for handling tons of different common problems and will take live audience feedback and walk participants through the thought and coding process to automate whatever it is that has been asked for. The templates and code created during the session will be provided back to the participants.
