Google Apps Script is a coding language based on JavaScript that runs in the cloud. You can do really amazing things with Apps Script, within just a few lines of code. It allows you to supercharge your Google Workspace apps, to save time, and do a lot more. Google Apps Script allows you to interact with the Google Suite of products, and create customized functionality within those products. There is nothing to install, it's based on JavaScript which makes it easy to get started with, and because of the code syntax being JavaScript there is a massive amount of coding examples and support online. Anyone can get started with it quickly and easily. I guarantee once you start writing some code, and see how easily it can do amazing things it will leave you wanting more.

This book is designed to help anyone get started with code, loaded with coding examples and code snippets you can try.
