The Best UiPath Book Selections to Take Your RPA Developing Skill Set to the Next Level

As a UiPath developer it’s necessary to require some best practice skills. Knowing the RPA industry, and especially the developing are, I was quite sure, which books, I would recommend. Basically I’ve done the research for you (as a working RPA developer) and here are my book recommendations for UiPath RPA developers in no particular order. Note: If you buy the below books, I will get an affliate cut (that did not influenced my decisions).

Robotic Process Automation Projects: Build real-world RPA solutions using UiPath and Automation Anywhere

The best UiPath RPA book you can buy. It will teach you all the theory using real-life RPA examples, which will give you hands-on experience. Meaning that it will boost your chances of making a career out of RPA (UiPath or Automation Anywhere).

Keywords for this book is: In depth practical enterprise knowledge from the authors, which will teach you the best practices in RPA implementation.

Learning Visual Basic .NET by Jesse Liberty

Whether you’re an aspiring Junior or a Veteran UiPath RPA Developer this is the go-to book. It learns you object-oriented programming and easily introduces you to the popular Microsoft .NET language, VB.NET.

You will use VB.NET everyday everyday, when you build processes in UiPath Studio and everything is covered in Jesse Liberty master piece.

This book don’t assume you understand anything and will firmly introduce you to all the important aspects. If you only can afford one book, this is the one.

SQL in 10 Minutes, Sams Teach Yourself (4th Edition) by Ben Forta

Working with databases is another cornerstone in RPA development and especially SQL.

This book is, as you’ve probably guessed from the title not looking to teached you advanced SQL, but the good news is, that you dont need it as an UiPath RPA Developer. It’s more than enough to understand basic SQL activities like the major statements, format databases, update data, make queries etc.

But do remember to do the exercises in the end of each chapter.

The Robotic Process Automation Handbook: A Guide to Implementing RPA Systems by Tom Taulli

Hands down – most of us RPA Developers don’t know a whole lot of the business/governance part of RPA implementation.

Again you won’t be a business process expert, after reading this book, but again we don’t need to be RPA Developers. Your understanding for implementing RPA in the company will be taken to a new level.

Don’t think you can do with this book as a UiPath RPA Developer.

Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship by Robert C. Martin

This is the revised edition of the 2008 classic book, written by Robert C. Martin (known as Uncle Bob).

Uncle Bob’s philosophy is to have empathy, when developing your code. Empathy for the ones from your team, that eventually will have to work with your code, but also empaty with your future self.

It has a lot of practical examples, you can use as a RPA Developer, which will help write clean code.
