Description

Google Apps Script is a rapid application development platform that, along with its IDE, is packed with useful features that simplify code-writing and execution. This course, Fundamentals of Google Apps Script and IDE, teaches how to write functional code using the platform. First, you will be introduced to Google Apps Script and the basic functionality that you need to get started such as how to access and create new Scripts. Then, you will be guided through Google’s Developers website, as it is the go-to place for information relating to Apps Script. It includes Code Samples, Troubleshooting Guides, Support Documentation, and other information that will guide you through coding using Apps Script. After that, the course teaches how to run functions in Apps Script using Services and Methods to achieve your tasks. We create a Docs document and send a Gmail email to give you a demo of these processes.

Moving on, we introduce you to Apps Script’s editor also known as the IDE. You will be provided with valuable information concerning the options that are available to you within it, and crucial guidance that will allow you to optimize your code-writing and execution experience. One of the important options that get covered in the course is Debugging. You will be guided on using IDE’s built-in Debugging tool, adding Breakpoints to debug your Script code. You will then learn how to use Variables when writing code in the IDE, and distinguish the different states of Variables. This will enable you to make proper use of them when writing your code. After that, you will be guided on navigating Apps Script’s left side menu and the options available within it such as adding Triggers, accessing Executions and Project Settings. Then, we teach you how you can add Files to Apps Script, access Libraries, and add Services to your Projects. We then move on to Library and Web App Deployments, guiding you on the processes. And finally, you will learn about features available within the IDE’s right-click menu and Command Palette.

Google Apps Script is a cloud-based platform so you don't need to install anything on your computer. That makes the coding process easier. And the updated IDE has provided added advantages with its easier-to-read code and advanced Debugging functionality. So overall, the platform provides powerful code-writing and execution capabilities. And these are encapsulated in a simple user interface that makes coding available to anyone who is willing to learn it. This course comes in to bridge that knowledge gap enabling you to get coding in no time. And with its three-hour maximum study duration, it makes for an indispensable knowledge base for code-writing and execution. It is also video-based, so you will be getting live demos that you can then apply within Apps Script’s IDE. So, enroll now in this free online course and gain valuable knowledge in Google Apps Script and IDE.
