Hey Zach ... you did a great demo of external data in Banzai at DF15. You connected to Google Calendar and were able to view and update events in a Skuid calendar. Any chance you could share that page you built or provide some info on how to set up the connection?

Thanks,
Glenn.

Hi everyone! There is now a tutorial for using REST to connect a Skuid Calendar component with Google Calendar. You can find the complete step-by-step instructions here: http://help.skuid.com/m/supercharge-your-ui/l/414363 

I hope you all find this helpful!

Hi Cody, noticed a few small typos:
"While Skuid supports other authentication methods, Oauth 2.0 is required when interacting with Google APIs."

"Methods are the means by which your Skuid component will request your data from the Calendar API, so we'll need to setup a method for each type of data interaction you'll have."

"use URL merge parameters that are consistently named and easily identifiable."

Thank you! The grammarian within me always appreciates typo corrections.
