DevOps automation

Post by WayneDante »

Can you give me examples of things you always automate and others that you don’t in DevOps? Can you tell me about a process that was a real challenge for you to automate? I want to jump in DevOps, interested in it.

Your question is good but possibly too broad.

I find that almost anything can be automated as long as it has a published API or an automation interface. COM, Net and most Win32 APIs can be accessed to create automation solutions.

Remember that the term "automation" is general to all of computing. We use compu6ters to automate almost everything. PowerShell adds a tool that allows access to automation using general programming principals and techniques. PowerShell supports all of this through a C-like language syntax and an "engine" that manages the code and allows access to the system through the CLR (Common Language Runtime) environment. Nearly anything you can do in C# can be done with PowerShell.

More specific examples on your part would make answering your question much easier.
