Process automation – workflow, RPA, and beyond

Are you interested in process automation?

If so, I may have 2 interesting things for you.

1) I recently published the first version of a course “Process automation – workflow, RPA, and beyond” on Udemy and want to share it with my readers.

This is an early version of a course with content mostly covering workflow/BPMS tools. I will be adding more videos about RPA and other tools soon, but to decide what to focus on I would like to hear feedback from people with an early adopter attitude 🙂

If this sounds interesting use the link below to join the course for free:
and tell me what should I add!

UPDATE2: You can join the course for a lowest Udemy price (9,99 USD) using this link:
