Start of RPA Buddies – Part #001
Start of my new project RPA Buddies
Last year i decided it was time for a new (mega) project where i would be busy with the next coming months and hopefully years. I will give myself one year to explore this project and will see where i will end up next year, either way i will be learning new things and will face many challenges along the way.
So, what is the project?
Since 2017 i have an Unattended RPA buddy running several projects for myself and family members. I use the UiPath Cloud platform for that. I have another attended buddy that helps me and i have a 24/7 Unattended Buddy working for me and
But i do not have running new projects at the moment. So i decided to challenge myself (again). Build my own Company, departments, hire employees and conquer all the problems that will occur along the way. All based on fiction, so i can be creative where i want. A company on paper, but with real life issues to overcome.
I could of course run it all locally, but where is the challenge in that. I want to try to show the process of the working robots that are in use and some sort of a web dashboard where people can see the live workload that the robots are working on. All in realtime.
I have many ideas on how i want to visualize it and will work on that along the way.
Did i have everything worked out already. Nope, i actually have so many ideas that i have i hard time to start with which part. So i started with filling the backlog in Jira Software.
Will i succeed?
Of course i will /*sarcasm. Actually, i have no idea. The most important part for me is i want to have fun, challenge myself, overcome my shortcomings, upgrade my knowlegde and might find a new career path, who knows. Most of all it’s a personal fun project. How should i call it? An IT-diary? haha.
If i don’t succeed that is fine too. Or. It was a nice try, learned a lot, but have other things to attend to in life.
I have registered 2 domain names and that was the start. The name RPA Buddies is for the main company and RPA Buddy i have no use for yet. My knowlegde is not limited to RPA and i want to upgrade my game. I need a big challenge for myself where i can be creative, overcome issues and argue with myself haha.
August 2022. Starting to create plans and registered 2 domainnames.
June 27, Coming soon page launched. RPA-buddies.nl
Planned: July 14 Launch of info site.
I work in sprints of 2 weeks.
- Setup webhosting
- Setup gmail/google account for Analytics.
- Setup kofi to make donations possible Kofi – RPA Buddies
- Setup intro blogpost
- Calculate if co-location of my server is a better aproach then on-premise. Still brainstorming on what would be best.
- Hardware and software plan
I want to create a blog every week, so i can keep track of my progress. At first it will be headlines and later on i hope to explain more in blogs and videos.
Several parts of the project will be discussed.(hardware, software, RPA software and tooling, etc).
