RPA summer challenge

· Materiaalit

The RPA summer challenge is meant to give an introduction to programming robotics and Robot Framework. The challenge is made possible by Knowit. 

After the summer we have a virtual meeting in order to study the challenge solutions together, present a few alternative solutions and have a Q&A with Knowit specialists. This meeting will be held in Finnish on August 26th from 4pm to 6pm. Questions and answers will be published after the meeting in English.

Tips for starting

Some notes

  • Syntax (grammar)
  • Running the robot code
    • Save your file with .robot file extension (my_foodie_robot.robot)
    • Open command prompt (CMD)
    • Go to the same folder where you saved your robot-file
    • E.g. cd C:\Users\kayttaja\Documents

• After this you can run the code: robot my_foodie_robot.robot

• After the run is completed, Robot Framework forms log.html file where you are able to see how the run went and if something went wrong, you will find some guidance there
