Hack things together
A little scripting never hurt anybody
Sometimes you have to do a specific task and you are fully capable of doing it manually, however those tasks are also great to flex your muscles and hack something together.
They can be an excellent tool to sharpen your skills with the tools you use regularly, and improve your quick prototyping skills.
In addition, with a couple of iterations, again sharpening an important skill, you could afterwards create a more general purpose tool from a hacky script.[Read More]
