Like many developers, I got into the industry because I liked playing games. As I explored software development further, my focus shifted: I learned that I liked automating things. I found the notion that you could write a few thousand lines of text that could completely automate a job that might have consumed a human life a century ago intoxicating.
This website is named after a cheeky phrase I came up with a few years ago to refer to my passion for automation. In my eyes, the greatest computer program is one that is completely out of sight and out of mind. It automates something tedious or menial in a completely transparent way, such that you start having difficulty imagining how to work without it.
