Power up the next generation of software robots by building reusable automation components with UiPath.

UiPath is on a mission to help developers automate repetitive workplace processes and to increase employee productivity. In this competition, you'll build open source, reusable components using the UiPath Studio for a chance at over $15.000 in cash and prizes, and additional exposure to UiPath, its customers, and it’s thriving developer community. Submissions will fall into one of six categories: custom activities, dashboard components, automation frameworks, application connectors, snippets, or machine learning models. Additionally, you can develop any kind of reusable component that automate repetitive processes and can be integrated within UiPath Studio ( example: macros).

About UiPath

Built for both business and IT, UiPath is the leading platform for enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA). More than 700 enterprise customers and government agencies use UiPath's Enterprise RPA platform to rapidly deploy software robots that perfectly emulate and execute repetitive processes, boosting business productivity, ensuring compliance and enhancing customer experience across back-office and front-office operations. With a thriving RPA developer community of more than 120,000 worldwide, UiPath is on a mission to democratize RPA and support a digital business revolution. Based in New York City, UiPath’s presence extends to 14 countries throughout North America, Europe and Asia. The company is backed by $183M in series A & B funding from Accel, CapitalG, Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers, Credo Ventures, Earlybird’s Digital East Fund and Seedcamp. UiPath’s Series B valuation exceeded $1 billion.

Main requirement:

Build open source reusable components using the UiPath Studio that automate repetitive tasks in the workplace. You can either build something that fits in the following categories or not: Custom Activities, Dashboard, Automation Frameworks, Application and Data Connectors, Snippets, or Machine Learning models.

Here you can find the best submissions during the idea contest to serve you as an inspiration and not only. Best ones have been voted by our developer's community. If you have questions regarding the reusable components feel free to contact the owner of the idea on the community forum.

Reusable Components: Ready-made workflows, or ready-made code snippets, which you can invoke/include in your own workflows in UiPath Studio. They should be reusable for as many users, environment and processes as possible.

Good example: Workflow for logging into SAP.

Bad example: Workflow for creating a custom report in your custom application (not reusable for other reports/other users).

Themes

Custom Activities

Activities which you will be able to install and drag-and-drop into your workflows in UiPath studio. They should cover areas which are not already handled by the default activities and activity packs which come with UiPath Studio. Good example: custom activity to upload file to SharePoint. Bad example: Custom activity to run a query on SQL Server database (already covered in the Database activity ...

Dashboards

Ready-made dashboards which can be deployed by users on their environments. Will use the UiPath robot’s logs as a data source. Can be made in Kibana or any other reporting/BI platform. It would be great if a mockup is submitted along with the idea, or at least comprehensive descriptions of all the data points.

Automation Frameworks

A framework will handle many common tasks and components (e.g. error handling, reporting, transactional workflow, environment setup) and leave the development of the business logic up to the user. Good example: Robotic Enterprise Framework (generic framework for any transactional business process). Another good example: Framework for scanning documents and postprocessing them into a document store.

Application Connectors

Components which enable UiPath to “talk” to other applications. Good example: Connector for IBM Watson. Bad example: Connector for Excel (excel activities already exist in the core product). & Data Connectors: Components which enable UiPath to connect to external data sources. Good example: MongoDB connector. Bad example: SQL Server connector (already covered in the database package of the core p...

Snippets

Snippets or Workflow Snippets are ready-made workflows which you can invoke/include in your own workflows in UiPath Studio. They should be reusable for as many users, environment and processes as possible. These workflows use the same deployment, versioning and release management like the binary activities.

Machine Learning Models

Ready-trained machine learning models which can be used inside a project which leverages machine learning. Good example: image-recognition model for TensorFlow.
