About Insights In Automation

At “Insights In Automation” we’re passionate about technology.

We look forward to getting our hands on the latest hardware and software, but also get nostalgic when breaking out old serial cables and DOS software to work on legacy products.

As passionate as we are about technology, we’re equally passionate about helping others learn how to use it.

And at it’s core, that’s what “Insights In Automation” is all about. It’s not only our place to talk about automation, but also a place where we help others learn how to use it.
