In the DevOps world, much is made of automation and reducing friction. Despite this, few engineers that I’ve met take the fullest advantage of the closest point of friction: the humble terminal. For decades, terminals have been most powerful tool in most engineers’ arsenals, and are well-automatable. It’s certainly not hard to improve your daily life, but I find that few people know about or explore the world of dotfiles. In this talk, I’ll show some ways that you can improve your daily life by reducing friction, saving time, being lazier, catching mistakes, and amusing yourself.
