Final step: take a quiz, and get a certificate!
Congratulations! You made it! You created a real software robot to automate a mundane task. Looking at the completed robot, it is pretty impressive what you can achieve with a relatively small amount of "code". And it is even quite readable. Looking at the task and the steps, you get a pretty good picture of what the robot does. Wow! 🎉

The best thing is that it all runs automatically in the cloud now. Maria will get an email if something goes wrong, but otherwise, she is now free to use her time to do something less brain-killing than copying and pasting all that sales data every week! 🥳
Upon starting your journey, you might not have known much about software robots. During your journey, you learned many new concepts. You ran and reran your robot, getting the feel of iterative development. You took small steps towards the ultimate goal. Amazing! We did cut some corners, though.
My precioussss! 💍
Remember Maria's credentials? Those should be taken away from your robot script and placed in a secure place called vault. The vault resides somewhere safe (no pun intended!). Never paste secret stuff in your robot scripts! Read more about how to use a vault for secrets and see the web store order robot for an example of using the vault.

You are on your way to becoming a great software robot developer. There is a ton of things to discover, but you are more than capable of learning the ropes. You can start by trying out the many examples and how-tos on this site. They'll teach you some new tricks and use some of the things you have already learned when building your first robot.
Robocorp supports automating any system that a robot has access to, be it a desktop application, API, mainframe, database, FTP server, an image stream of the user interface...
Also, check out the AutomationOps Analyst course, where we will look at the whole process of delivering a robot from initial analysis to production!
When you want to learn best practices, such as version control and keeping the credentials safe, check out our software robot project workflow course!
There are example robots available in our portal! Trying them out and reading their code can teach you a lot!
