Any time you have to do anything manual in your development workflow, you've created a chance for errors to occur and potential hours of chasing it down. In this talk, we'll go over ways to automate steps in your workflow such as setting up a build server, command line tools to incorporate into scripts, and scripting uploads to services such as Amazon's S3 and HockeyApp. By the end of this talk, you'll have the tools and knowledge necessary to remove the manual and error-prone parts of your workflow so you can spend more time making software and less time figuring out "what went wrong".
