Beginner Pega Robotic Automation 19.1 Robotic Process Automation English

Developers and coders, when presented with a new project, begin typing code and using the language methods and functions as well as standard language format and structure. Pega Robot Studio™ uses design blocks instead of lines of code. These design blocks perform, respond, or set an object or control in an automation. In Pega Robot Studio, users can find the basis for some of the standard coding logic in the Toolbox. Recognizing the library of components along with their functions and methods within the Toolbox is critical for developers to create automations that perform the simplest to most complex tasks required of the project and solution.
