Creating Your First Bots
Overview: There’s no better way to learn about building bots than by actually getting hands on and doing it. In this learning experience, developers will walk through the process of creating their first bots to start their bot building journey.
With a foundational understanding of what RPA is and how bots can be used to solve problems, there is no better way to learn about creating bots than getting hands on. Using Automation 360’s cloud-based bot editor, lets start off by building a few simple bots before moving on to more complex use cases. Learning to become a good RPA developer is no different than learning any other skill – it takes observation, practice, and repetition to build the skillset needed to tackle more complex automation opportunities. Use the exercises that follow as exactly that – practice. Get your bots to work, understand why they work, and tweak them a bit to understand how changes impact the way that they run.
The best way to get better at something is with practice. Practice pages like the login exercise used above and the Nasdaq page give developers the opportunity to get hands on with real pages to see how bots can be created to automate data entry and data extraction. Moving on to future learning experiences, take the lessons learned in this Creating Your First Bots segment to continue to build your knowledge in creating more dynamic automations.
