Automation is great, but how do you know when the right thing to do is to stop writing it? How do you take on complex automation projects of unknown scope and deliver impact incrementally?

This talk explores lessons learned in the automation space at a large public Cloud provider, that are applicable to anyone looking for new ideas to reduce toil in their day to day work.
