Generating slides from spreadsheet data

Generating slides from spreadsheet data

Spreadsheets are a great utility in the business world, a virtual swiss army knife for what they can do with data, turning it into information. While presentations aren’t able to manipulate data in the way a spreadsheet can, they do take information & make it more visually appealing & more easily understood by human beings. In this video, Google engineer Wesley Chun shows you how to import spreadsheet data into presentations by using both the Google Sheets and Slides APIs. With these APIs, you can develop powerful apps that can automate this process between both types of apps so users no longer have to do this by hand.
