Programmer Writes Codes To Make Coffee, Automate His Daily Tasks

A number of software programmers on GitHub have developed a project that enables developers to share insights with one another and automate jobs automatically without any hassles.

One of such is the one made known to fellow programmers by Nihad Abbasov, known as Narkoz on Github. Abbasov did not personally write the scripts, but he stumbled into it when one of his coworkers left and took up appointment with another company. Abbasov mentioned that the young man wrote scripts for any tasks that took more than 90 seconds of his time, and he even automated most of his daily tasks with relevant scripts that see them happen.

Abbasov and his team found that the young man had written scripts that covered his relationships with people, coffee making, and other aspects of his duties. For instance, one of the scripts he wrote would automatically send a message to his wife that he was going to be late at work if he is still working on his office computers at past 9 p.m.

Another script automatically sends a predetermined message to a particular client he didn’t particularly like after the codes scanned his email and finds certain words such as “sorry” and “help” among others. And yet there is still one other script that sends off the message “not feeling well, working from home” to his colleagues at work if for any reason he has not logged into his office computers by 8:45 a.m.

And the most interesting script is the one written to command the coffee machine to brew a good latte 17 seconds after the command is activated; and then the codes instruct the coffee machine to hold on for another 24 seconds before pouring the latte into a cup – and this is the time the young programmer needs to walk from his desk to the machine.

Abbasov’s colleagues now understand that scripts can be written for almost any device under all circumstance – at least they didn’t know the coffee machine could be hacked into and commanded from within the computer network to make good coffee at any particular time.
