In this month’s episode of the Full Stack Journey podcast, Brett Johnson joins Scott to revisit the topic of automation and how IT professionals can (and should!) embrace automation as a core part of their skill set.
During this episode, Scott and Brett discuss:
- Challenges Brett encountered in embracing automation as a core part of his skill set (Hint: The challenges aren’t necessarily technical!)
- Helpful tools and resources
- The role of books in learning new technologies. Are they useless?
- Where blogs fit into an IT professional’s “toolset” when it comes to learning new technologies
