What programming language should be learned with RPA that can help me score a job in rpa domain.
The underlying language is VB.net.
yeah ,i am aware of it but do we need to dedicatedly learn it beside RPA .
it isn’t easy to answer your question, because it depends on your requirements.
RPA Product perspective:
Use case perspective:
Python is one of the leading languages in AI, if you plan to use RPA with AI Python is a good choice. If your focus is on business environments and office applications, who work mainly with Microsoft and SAP products, is C# a good choice.
Surely there are more perspectives here. As you can see, the question which “programming language should be learned with RPA” cannot be answered unambiguously. That has many dependencies.
Yes, since many of the things you will need to do will be through calling functions, properties, etc. of objects using VB.net code.
I have just started learning RPA because I love automation and want to switch my career to this by getting a job…
But there are multilple challenges:-
first is I already work on tableau/sql in my organisation and hardly get time to learn rpa with my current job.
Second is am beginner in programming too.
Considering I will require knowledge of multiple languages like .net and c# to get the best of RPA.
There are too many things to learn and less time how can i score a job in rpa let alone learn rpa along with c# and .net
the Microsoft VB developer team wrote in its blog Visual Basic support planned for .NET 5.0, from the 11th of March 2020:
“… Going forward, we do not plan to evolve Visual Basic as a language. This supports language stability and maintains compatibility between the .NET Core and .NET Framework versions of Visual Basic. Future features of .NET Core that require language changes may not be supported in Visual Basic. Due to differences in the platform, there will be some differences between Visual Basic on .NET Framework and .NET Core. …”
From this perspective it is not advisable to focus on VBdotNET.
you have the right mental attitude, that’s the most important basic requirement. If someone does not realize this, it is not the right partner for you.
Don’t put yourself under pressure. RPA platforms are a collection point for a wide variety of automation technologies. You will always be at a point where you will discover new things. Find a topic that interests you and work on it step by step. Then look for a another topic again, etc., etc., etc. Accept gaps, because there will always be some.
Hi everyone , whats language is more important in Uipath? I define one to start my learning.
Hi Stefan! I,m a beginner in RPA, what language do you recommend between C# and Vb?
I want to focus on some, i have a difficult to write a”big”expressions in my automation.
contrary to the announcement by Microsoft above, VBdotNET has been further developed.
C# and VBdotNET are syntactically different languages but both are part of dotNET Framework and dotNET 6. Both can be used cross-platform. C# has a higher acceptance in the business and professionals. VBdotNET offers an easier introduction to programming. I use both, depending on the application. You wrote about “big” expressions, perhaps a preference can be derived from this. In my opinion it is not really possible to give a clear recommendation. You are a beginner, so VBdotNET is certainly not a bad choice.
Thank you for your help!!!
I’m struggling with the same question, but I went to linkedin and other job websites and searched for RPA Jobs.
Some of them requires some knowledge in database and its languages (mostly SQL), API and AS-IS/TO-BE documenting
(suponho que você é brasileira, mas como o fórum é geral em inglês, acho válido deixar o comentário pra ajudar quem vier)
hahahaha sou Brasileira sim. Vc tbm?
For RPA it’s necessary knowledge in process mapping, construction flow chats, PDD, SDD, etc.And then other requires you said.
Currently my difficult is at expressions in VB and C#
Sou sim hehehe, vejo muito pouca coisa boa em português sobre RPA. Tô aprendendo o que se usa no UiPath na marra mesmo. Tô inventando uns projetos e me virando pra buscar como resolve
Material bom só em inglês mesmo. Em português tem um cara mt bom o Marcelo Cruz, ele é MVP da Uipath e tem um curso mt bacana na Udemy tbm.
Muito grato pela indicação! Vou conferir sim os vídeos dele
Por nada! Qualquer dúvida só chamar!
