  • When an incident occurs in the systems you maintain, are there several things you might check depending on the type of incident that occurs? Perhaps you could automate pulling out some key data on your local machine to save some critical time.
  • Rotating keys, setting up users, any other admin tasks you could use avoid logging into your cloud platform?
  • Are there parts of your job where the UI of your cloud-provider of choice is a total pain(*cough* Cloudwatch… *cough*)? Perhaps you could avoid it by programming a solution.
