Discussion on: I love writing scripts to solve small problems

I love writing small scripts (shell or python) to automate everything that requires redundant tasks.
For instance, I did it to experiment on Git rebase very recently (even wrote an article about that).
When I am talking to non tech people, I am just stunned at how they could do so less work by knowing these things and automating these kind of work.

So happy to hear other people enjoy it too!

I think the first step to getting people started is to make them aware what's possible. That will get their imagination rolling and they start to correctly identify problems they encounter and then learn the required skills to solve them.
