Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Advanced training is intended for developers starting their journey to become RPA developers. This training provides a core understanding of RPA fundamental concepts for anyone involved in an Agile and/or DevOps automation team.
For technical developers who will develop or maintain RPA agents (software robots).
Basic familiarity with business processes and any coding language provides a good starting point. Any automation background (test automation, production automation) is a good asset.
What it means to be an automation developer in an agile development team. What requirements and limitations must be considered before engaging in a RPAdevelopment sprint.

Best practices for mapping and documenting the processes/tasks to be automated. Examples of ways, templates and environments for documenting the process and programming logic and maintaining configuration information.
- How to identify processes/tasks fit for automation
- How to identify which processes/tasks are not suitable for RPA
- Software delivery lifecycle in a DevOps organization.
- Practical examples of how processes/tasks must be observed and documented for RPA
- Why do we need to document in a detailed enough level
- Examples of templates and how software configuration version management and logs should be stored.
- Simulation of a task to be automated and documentation of the process for technical implementation.
Development of software robot
- How the development work of a software robot starts, which iterations to expect, how to manage change situations
- How to manage backlog
- How to transfer the software robot into production and which pitfalls to avoid
- How to document a software robot implementation.
