2017 Josh Atwell🔊🥃 . @JerDoug i don't have enough space. I'll say that your investment in your discipline is more than performing tasks. You provide invaluable operational guidance.

Kris Saxton All automation will destroy some jobs, create and change others. The best place to be is on the crest of that wave (not underneath it).

Sam Fell @DOES_USA See my earlier tweet about leaders making themselves obsolete... don't be afraid of progress! Niches and opportunities are created, there!

Thomas A. McGonagle This is a huge issue in the netops world. I try to gently say that automation is the new normal and not automating is an avenue to unemployment...

John Furrier btw: gr8 question. To me it's like the mainframe guys. Some hung around til the end many figured out the new way and jumped over to the new wave called Mini's and LANs and PCs

Ben Grinnell Move up the value stream. If you are firefighting start working proactively on how to make your job redundant before release - that's your new job

Peter Eeles Every role has elements that will become mainstream, mundane, repeatable and automatable. Identifying new areas that do not have these characteristics where to head. E.g. moving to cloud still needs people :)

nicole forsgren Technology is for automation. People are for solving problems. Let tech do the boring, repetitive stuff. Embrace the exciting, challenging work. Let yourself be promoted.

Kaimar Karu @damonedwards Takes us back to lack of respect. Kind of expecting the worst from people - sometimes (but not always) because one would behave like that themselves.
