Hello UiPath Community!
I have started to organize different RPA developers, analysts and professionals to help out in identifying, creating, and solving use cases for the COVID-19 Pandemic. I have posted an Open Call to find professionals willing to help on LinkedIn on this post.
Most of us in this industry are fortunate enough to have the ability to work from home, and have a more streamlined transition to remote work and digital connection. But I raise the question of how are we able to help the companies and non-profit organizations that desperately need the support right now for their in-person communities and operations? Supply chain, human resources, customer experience, and a plethora of other professions are all being overloaded by this current crisis.
Please find the Organizing Google sheet HERE. This is how we are currently organizing efforts of giving back and thinking how we can best use our UiPath technology to help others. Please follow the instructions on the “Getting Started” sheet to start thinking of how to help out in the COVID-19 pandemic as well as checking the “Daily Updates” sheet of action items and tasks to do next. Add your name to the Volunteer tab with your email and you will get an invite to the Automation Hub workspace.
If you have any more questions or want to get more involved and work with other developers, HERE is the Whatsapp chat invite link. For any organizations that you are involved in or need help, please comment on this thread and we can start and how the community can get involved.
We hosted a webinar to brainstorm around this topic on Sunday 3/15 from 8:00AM - 9:00AM PST / 3:00 - 4:00PM GMT / 8:30PM - 9:30PM IST . You can find the brainstorm session recorded at the Zoom link HERE.
We hosted an office hour this week for onboarding volunteers. We had a new volunteer onboarding call on Thursday 3/18 for any new volunteers and questions/collaboration. The recording can be found HERE.
Additionally, we will have our next Global Forum Touchpoint surrounding everything on Friday 3/27 from 7:00AM - 8:00AM PST / 2:00PM - 3:00PM GMT (originally was 3/22) and will be at this link HERE , be prepared to turn on your camera and meet some volunteers.
Looking forward to working with you all to give back at this crucial time in history. Thank you.
