Episode 231: Slacking the VMwares
One of the best things you can do to boost productivity and save yourself time is automate tasks. (For example, we love moving workflows into Slack.) In this episode Tom, Marcus, and Charles interview Ella Hansen of IgnitionIT and discuss stringing together workflows using tools like Slack and Google Apps Script to help make real humans more productive. It’s a pretty awesome thing to do.
