I Want to Automate ALL the Things

The CMD-D Conference infected me with the desire to automate everything. I’m pretty sure that was their evil plan all along. In this article I’m going to talk about one quick thing I did in AppleScript in the finder, then tell what I hope is an interesting story of discovery in AppleScript for Photos, then I’ll talk about what I want to do in the future on iOS in Workflow and Keyboard Maestro on the Mac. I’m telling you, I’ve descended into madness!

CMD-D | Masters of Automation with Sal Soghoian

Sal Soghoian Allison
Sal Soghoian

This week Steve and I attended, and I spoke at the CMD-D Conference, created by Sal Soghoian. Sal was responsible for all Automation at Apple for many years. His team managed AppleScript, Automaton, and Terminal. Pretty much all the coolest stuff at Apple.

I have to tell you I was pretty intimidated about speaking at this conference. I’ll get into that a little bit more in a bit but I want to tell you about the conference and then about my presentation. You know, better story telling that way.

Make Your Own Fire

Allister here, still standing in for Allison.

About a month ago, Allison wrote a blog post entitled “I have made fire!” which briefly chronicled how she had imagined a change she wanted to make to a scripted, automated backup of the podfeet.com server and how she made that change all by herself, using knowledge gained in the last few years from Bart’s teachings on Chit Chat Across The Pond.

The final sentence in that post was this.

I know this is a silly little example, but it makes me so very happy to have been able to do such a simple little procedure, ALL BY MYSELF.

I agree, it is a silly little example. But I also know how happy it made Allison because I’ve been hooked on that feeling for over 30 years. If you’re listening to this podcast, there’s a reasonable chance you have an interest in technology, but how deep does your interest go? Continue reading “Make Your Own Fire”
