What I’m Working On Next

After two years self-employed at Insights In Automation, it's obvious where you, my customers, want me focusing my time: Training.

What’s Next

The Last Few Months... You may have noticed the frequency of my blogs, videos, and podcasts has slowed over the last two months as I split my time between a WWTP SACADA project, and creating my very first PanelView course, PVP Basics. That course, which is currently on sale at Udemy.com, took far longer to create than I had hoped, and after completing it I...

Who is “The Automation Guy”

Hello and welcome to the TheAutomationGuy.com, a blog of somewhat random musings from the author of The Automation Blog, Podcast, Minute and School (that's me.) Let me start my first post by addressing the elephant in the room: Why did I give myself the title of "The Automation Guy?"
