If you've used Gmail, you've probably also used Google Calendar. This tool is widely used for scheduling and organizing events. Since Google has provided a public API to the service, developers can access its features from their own app.
In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Reggie Dawson will show you how to access the Google Calendar API. You'll see how to register your app with Google, how to authorize your app for access to a user's account, and how to add an event that will show up in a user's Google Calendar.
1. How to Use the Google Calendar API
[SOUND] I'm sure if use Gmail, you've encountered the Google Calendar. The considerable infrastructure Google possesses can be leveraged for using your apps as well. This means that we can access the calendar through code and use it in our own projects. In this way, we can coordinate meetings between developers of our App, for example. In this course, we will first learn what information we need to create an event in the calendar. Then, we will modify the starter project. Originally, all this does is display the last ten events from the calendar. Instead, we will configure this project to add an event to the calendar. After watching this course, you should be prepared to use the calendar in your apps going forward.
