Google Apps Script overview

Google Apps Script is a rapid application development platform that makes it fast and easy to create business applications that integrate with Google Workspace. You write code in modern JavaScript and have access to built-in libraries for favorite Google Workspace applications like Gmail, Calendar, Drive, and more. There's nothing to install—we give you a code editor right in your browser, and your scripts run on Google's servers.

If you're new to JavaScript, Codecademy offers a number of JavaScript courses. (Note that these courses weren't developed by and aren't associated with Google.)
