Pragmatic Project Automation shows you how to improve the consistency
and repeatability of your project's procedures using automation to
reduce risk and errors.
Simply put, we're going to put this thing called a computer to
work for you doing the mundane (but important) project stuff. That
means you'll have more time and energy to do the really exciting---and
difficult---stuff, like writing quality code.
This is a book by programmers, for programmers. This isn't the sort
of automation used to make backups or process your payroll. This is
automation for the rest of us---programmers who are on the hook to
deliver working software next week, and the week after, and the
week after that. To keep that pace, we need to work smarter, not
harder. Manual processes of any duration quickly add up to a big
problem. Automation is the antidote.
