Hence the computer programs, like Maple that do it for you (rather than tediously going through it by hand) for whatever notation and coordinates you might want to use.

In general I recommend doing it once or twice by hand (usually its a homework problem to compute the Christoffel symbols, Ricci tensor and Riemann tensor for say the Schwarschild metric) and then never doing it again for sanity purposes.
