I have automated an ill-thought process that used to involve creating an
ad-hoc 1500 line windows batch program to carry out an unattended remote
installation every time my company tried to deploy new content on their
large network of Video Lottery Terminals.
I was hired basically to help develop those silly windows batch programs
which were creating a bottleneck, and by writing step by step a 5000 line
python program that automatically generated the batch programs, the
bottleneck went elsewhere. The whole process is as ill-thought as ever,
but I'm no longer stressed, and they haven't had to replace the members of
the team who left the company, effectively downsizing it from five to two
I have also used Python to do lots of file processing, one time programs.
