Guide To Building A Scalable RPA CoE

This is a book I wrote on RPA, first published on 2019 – I kept the book concise; giving the readers less time to understand and more time to implement the right strategies. Available to read for free on Kindle.

Coming Soon!

A book on Prompt Engineering

Prompt Engineering : Understand how to get the best output from a Generative AI Model

Currently writting a book on prompt engineering – where I dive deep into the nuances of prompting to any generative AI model so the best tailored output can be geenrated. This book will not be a very big list of various prompts, rather will give an understanding of how these models work in the background so you can devise the right prompts for your bespoke scenarios (Something that no AIs can do just yet 😉 )
