UK National VMUG Conference 2018 – Automation

Presented for my 8th Year at the UK VMUG Conference 12 weeks ago on all things automation. Always a big thanks to the VMUG team for allowing me to present. I brought my usual humour with me and even showed a prototype app I’ve been working on called Project Hermes for putting a UI to automation tools that use JSON or YAML files to send instructions. Anyway, my sponsors listed below coughed up a ton of prizes and in the end only 21 people entered my competition and most people won 2 prizes and some 3 as I had that many. However, if you missed out Vembu are giving you a 2nd chance by filling in a survey found by clicking >HERE<

Anyway big shout out to the sponsors who donated prizes to my sessions:

Bots – a blast from the past.

Team 18 years ago while I was still a Novell consultant and at work, I was very frustrated with the number of systems I had to log in too. We had NT domains + Novell Edirectory + numerous other dos based systems that had separate logins. I wanted to automate the login process because we had no SSO and I stumbled across AutoIT. Team AutoIT is still relevant today as it was back then. If you have software on a Windows system you can automate it regardless of APIs or not. You can create a small or large bot to automate stuff and its FREE. Here is a recent video where this chap demonstrates its power by automating gameplay. This could easily be an operations tool instead of a game >




I think its time to relearn this tool given my current interests at work…
