Description

Many of us use computers every day to accomplish business tasks, but we lack the confidence to stray beyond the specific things we've been trained to do.

Creating automation with abc RPA tool like UIPath will definitely require you to level-up your skills so you have full command of your environment, and you can imagine better, more efficient solutions for any problem you face.

For a human to provide the most value in an RPA environment, he or she must have a combination of business AND technical skills so they can use an RPA tool like UiPath to help automate processes across multiple system boundaries including email, documents, databases, websites, mainframes, and APIs.

If you’ve primarily been doing manual computer work and you find technical concepts like databases, APIs, and basic programming to be intimidating... this course is for you.

In this course I’ll provide you with technical skills and entry-level UiPath demos that will allow you to more confidently create software robots including:

  • A flowchart overview

  • Overviews of common automation targets (web, DB, API, folders & files)

  • Entry level .NET programming concepts

  • Data types & data structures, operators, control flow (if/else, loops, etc.)

The goal of this course is to help you become more confident using your computer to create software robots with the RPA tool like UiPath.

Who this course is for:
  • People who use computer frequently but don't feel confident about their technical skills
  • People who use websites but have no idea how they were created or how we can automate them
  • People who have never dealt with variables and data types & structures like int, decimal, string, list, etc.
  • Anyone who has never had to read & write data to files using computer programming techniques
  • Anyone who wants to improve their chances of getting and keeping a white collar job in the near future
