Tools

There are a wide range of tools, or ingredients, available to help you automate your tech life. While some are free, others operate on the freemium model and therefore have limitation with the free version. Of those that are freemium, I had minimal success in finding an educational discount with them. So keep that in mind.

Although there are likely many options out there for automating, I have assembled a list with many of them to get you started. I'll be discussing the pros and cons as well as some general pointers for each of them during my talk at ACTEM 2016.
