How can learning RPA help me in getting jobs in the future? originally appeared on Quora: the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.
Answer by Antti Karjalainen, Co-founder and CEO of Robocorp, in their Session:
Betting on an RPA tool has been a game of chance for many developers. Who knows whether your platform of choice will go out of style in the next few years. What is clear, though, is that the demand for RPA will continue to grow as the technology landscape matures. Open-source tools like Robot Framework will enable more companies to experiment with RPA and use it outside of today’s traditional use-cases.
When you start your RPA learning journey, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, when you are learning RPA, make sure to invest in understanding the ways of working in RPA more than a specific tool. This means that you should know how to translate business users’ problems into robust automated solutions and analyze the problem at hand beyond the current manual way of doing it. Secondly, invest your time in understanding how the RPA tools work, not just how they are used. Knowing how to create reliable automation routines requires a deeper understanding of UI locators and APIs than just using an image-based approach to automation. These skills will come in handy when you start using more developer-oriented tools for automation. And to point you in the right direction, Robocorp is creating good developer resources that you can use for this learning.
