Automate Yo'Self

SeaGL 2016

Fine-tuning your development environment means more than just getting your editor set up just so – it means finding and setting up a variety of tools to take care of the mundane housekeeping chores that you have to do – so you have more time to program, of course! I’ll share the benefits of a number of yak shaving expeditions, including using App::GitGot to batch manage all your git repos, App::MiseEnPlace to automate getting things just so in your working environment, smartcd to handle project-specific environment settings, and the Silver Searcher to speed up your code diving.
