It's really about the right tool for the job. I've used Python but C# scripting feels more natural and is almost as productive on Windows (at work). It's also supported by our IT.
My personal favorite is Lua but eventually that gets ported to something else. I've done batch files to Java depending on the goal. VBA is a staple in my field. I've done hot-key scripts is AutoIt to visual automation with commercial software.
Hello, world! I joined a year ago to get a sense of the community and really enjoy it, so it’s about time I introduced myself.
I’m a finance professional, like the open source philosophy and enjoy hobbiest programming.
I write tons of automation scripts/macros, but fear having to maintain them beyond my own use so I haven’t released much. I do however enjoy teaching people how to build their own.
Happy to be here! If you want to know something more just ask!
Father, husband, finance professional by day, open source enthusiast, hobbiest programmer by night.
