Josh Rizzo :: Automate Anything with IFTTT!

If-This-Than-That is an automation tool for connecting apps, services, and devices that do not normally integrate with each other.  IFTTT is easy enough to be used by anyone, but powerful enough to be useful even to DevOps veterans.  In this talk, we will learn how to make simple “recipes” in IFTT and explore what this tool can really do.

Josh is a Senior Consultant for Improving, with over a decade of experience in .NET, Java, and various other technologies and platforms.  Josh focuses on Scrum, web technologies, the.NET framework, Object Oriented Design, and maintaining legacy code.  He uses IFTTT to automate portions of his own to-do system, as well as his home appliances.
