We welcome community contributions as we build out a library of open-source reference models for a variety of automation scenarios. Top community contributors to published automation factories can earn extended/free CodeFactory licensing credits. Here are a few ideas, but you have freedom to build your own automation commands from the ground up. Check out a few of the ideas posted over on our Public Projects repository on GitHub or start your own.

  • Migrating Web Form apps to Blazor & .NET Core (Available now!)
  • Refactoring WCF services to gRPC (Available now!)
  • Updating unsupported 3rd party UI controls
