Automation & programming to solve a problem

Justification for Automation

It takes a special kind of geek to look at a generally routine task, then immediately consider creating an automation script to do it instead. In theory, the idea is great. Simply write a sub-routine or function which first, takes away a mundane human task, and then automate it as needed. The code will take a fraction of the time that the normal process takes a human, and it frees up said human to do other mundane tasks. In reality, however, the process of developing the script or functions takes far longer. First you have to adjust the script for variables or contingencies that come up, and then you have to maintain the whole program. This can be a large undertaking for future expansion.

A lot of times when we plan on creating something, we use a template. We like to lean on the blueprints and foundation of those that built before us. Maybe we embark on the adventure of building a tree fort by following examples and plans we find on pinterest. Or possibly we cook up a special batch of gluten-free chocolate walnut cookies with a recipe from a coworker. We might even design a crazy, always on, smart mirror from a raspberry pi and some tinted glass by reading a tutorial online. Whatever the case is, its common for us to use recipes, instructions or designs from others to make our own thing. We use this provided structure in the form of a template to help us form a plan towards completion. A road map that
