Our global outreach expanded with about 600 community events across over 80 chapters, blending in-person interactions with virtual meetups. This success reflects the dedication of our chapter leaders, whose voluntary efforts have been instrumental in nurturing local communities. This way, they are democratizing access to automation knowledge. We acknowledge and appreciate community members for everything they do for the automation community!

Key community initiatives and programs that shaped 2023

The Women in Automation program, a celebration that brings together women leaders, professionals, and curious learners that want to develop in the space of automation. Over 25 speakers and mentors supported the event, ‌and ‌more than 1,500 women were interested in the program.

For the second year in a row, UiPath Community conducted the Automation for Good Community Stories event. An open call for projects within our global community was launched. We gathered automation projects that had a direct impact on vulnerable groups, optimizing the well-being of ‌society. The implemented projects go beyond the primary benefits of automation, diving into a greater mission and vision of the non-governmental industries. This year, six automation projects were featured. With topics ranging from process optimization and volunteers management, scaling automation workforce through training, social work enhancement, to human rights abuse detection. The event was opened by our UiPath Foundation colleagues, with a snippet into their own efforts led together with the center of excellence team.

The UiPath Dev-Dives 2023 series, a year-long initiative, brings the latest use cases and product developments straight from UiPath product leaders. A hands-on webinar series that empowers automation developers and center of excellence teams to scale up faster and generate more value. In 2024, we are continuing the series with UiPath Dev-Dives 2024.

Focused events on technology integrations and connectors captivated thousands, enriching knowledge and engagement. New groups for testers, business analysts, and AI automation professionals emerged, marking a significant growth in diverse expertise. Business Analyst community event series 2023 was an online training to guide participants. The recommended learning path is designed ‌to obtain the UiPath Academy Automation Business Analyst Foundation diploma. Last not least, the journey ended with getting certified with UiPath Certified Automation Business Analyst (UiABA) certification.

State of the Automation Professional 2023, our annual UiPath Community industry report offers insights into what drives job satisfaction.
