Create a new robot from a template to get started

You grab a cup of your favorite beverage, dust off your computer, and launch VS Code. You have Robocorp extensions installed and ready to go.

Creating a new robot comes from muscle memory by now. You decide to call the robot inhuman-insurance-inc-ais-robot.

You have not built a producer-consumer bot before (if you have - pretend you haven't ๐Ÿ˜…). There's a template for that, but you decide to avoid using it for your first attempt to get familiar with all the details from the ground up. Thus, you select Python - Minimal.

The producer-consumer template is great later when you understand what it provides. By first building the robot from scratch, you better understand how everything fits together. This same thinking applies to any frameworks and libraries. It is useful to know a bit about what's inside and not just dismiss it as "magic". ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ

Almost done! Now you just need to implement the rest of the robot. ๐Ÿ˜€
