I don't remember the particular episode but yes, it was a wonderful series.
As to automation, I find it odd that we see this as a new thing. When I started work in a big utilities office, we had a typing pool, a room full of comptometer operators (remember those?), a whole stack of people making punch cards and numerous other people doing jobs that simply don't exist nowadays.
Ned Ludd and his mates were predicting the end of employment due to automation way back in the 18th century but we've seen time and time again that when one activity becomes obsolete a new one is created.
I will be moving to new role next month with different organization. I have been with current employer for 6.5 years and built around 30 solutions in that time span. Now that I am leaving I need to handover all those solutions to external company. They are not filling the role for now but outsourcing the work. I have already setup all the documentations I have in a nice folder structure by application. Made sure all the source code is there in version control server. I will be having one on one meeting with company this Friday.
Any tips for smooth handover ?
