AutoBloks Tutorial

Overview

AutoBloks is a tool whose goal is to enable any user to easily automate simple tasks. The first versions of the software will focus on interacting with web pages. The tutorials presented here will introduce you to the software and guide you step-by-step through the creation of an automated process.

Many tutorials builds upon the steps of the one that came before it. They are designed to be completed in order, but each tutorial will allow you to download any completed files from the previous tutorial so you can easily pick up that topic or repeat a tutorial where you would like to reinforce a concept.
