Areas ripe for automation are all around you. We’ll go over some examples of how code has evolved to automate away some of the tediousness of the past, some examples of why the future of automation means more jobs, not fewer, and how to think about automation as a tool to speed up your own work, allowing you to provide more value while evolving skills to own future automated systems.
