Finally, after Covid19 kept us apart for a long time, we got together again…and it was about time! More than 60 RPA Developers from all over the country joined the 4th edition of the DEV meet-up in Amsterdam, hosted by Tacstone Technology and UiPath. Based on the enthusiastic feedback and response, it was a very successful meet-up both in terms of content and community building.

“For RPA Developers, by RPA Developers”. That was, as always, the motto for this meeting. No sales pitches, but sharing the latest UiPath product knowledge, best practices and new learnings.

About UiPath DEV meet-ups

The life of an UiPath Developer is exciting, but can also be quite challenging. You act as ‘the bridge’ between business process owners and IT departments. You get involved in finding ways to optimize business processes before you automate them. You are working with many different applications and technologies. Engaging with many different stakeholders. And at the same time you try to keep up to date with all of these new UiPath releases, products and best practices. And think about the first automations you’ve build; would you be building these the same way nowadays? Although your learning curve is sky-high, it’s still a challenge to keep yourself up-to-date. You’re being spammed with RPA webinars, articles and trainings. Often focused on RPA in general, and in less extent on the technical expertise of RPA Developers.

We believe there’s great value in knowledge sharing amongst UiPath Developers. Not reinventing the wheel on your own island, but coming together to share tips & tricks that accelerate your learning curve. The UiPath DEV meet-ups are focused on knowledge sharing amongst developers. From Coding Standards to Multi-factor Authentication to new Studio Activities to the Integration of AI. Everything that helps you in building high-quality automations.

The State of the RPA Developer #Amsterdam Chapter

Inspired by UiPath’s State of the RPA Developer, we invited our guests to fill out a pre-order survey to gather insights about the current state of the RPA Developer in NL. The results showed that RPA is still a desirable field both for recent graduates as well as experiences professionals. Not only is there diversity in work experience but also in education, showing once again that RPA is suitable for all kinds of educational backgrounds. While we were joined by senior RPA developers, the majority stated that they have RPA experience between 2 to 5 years. Nonetheless, all attendees of the event acknowledged that they have required valuable knowledge and insights at the event.

Key-note #2: Yannic Suurmeijer (ASML) “De RPA Journey van ASML from Developer perspective”

Currently RPA is not a stand-alone solution anymore, as it used to be in the origins of UiPath implementations. The capabilities of Uipath have been intertwined with several other solutions for delivering sound process automation. Yannic, Development Lead for RPA at ASML, has highlighted some concrete examples on technical solutions that ASML adopted in their RPA landscape over the years.

Key-note: Dion Morskieft & John Posthuma (Smallsteps/Partou) – Dell Boomi & RPA

Hyperautomation brings together several components of process automation, integrating tools and technologies to amplify the ability to automate work. At Partou they apply this by invoking the integration platform Dell Boomi to allocate processes to their associated robot in Orchestrator. Dion, Senior RPA Developer, and John, expert on Dell Boomi, from Partou gave their insights on this with their Hyperautomation Demo.
