Google Ads scripts often need to work with dates and times. Common use casesinclude retrieving reports for a specific date range, scheduling campaigns orad groups to run at specific times, and outputting to a spreadsheet the timethe script last ran. This guide describes important concepts, common pitfalls,and recommended approaches when working with dates and times in Google Adsscripts.

In Google Ads scripts, the default timezone is America/Los_Angeles (Pacifictime), regardless of the timezone associated with the Google Ads account.Therefore, unless your Google Ads account is in this timezone, you shouldgenerally avoid using these methods.
Some scripts need to perform simple math with dates, such as finding a date Xdays before or after a given date. When performing date math, use getTime().Calling getTime() on a date object returns the number of milliseconds sincethe beginning of January 1, 1970 UTC. You can perform math on this value, thenapply the new value to a date object using setTime() or providing it as aparameter when creating a new date object.
Likewise, the getStatsFor() method available on many Google Ads scriptsobjects requires dates to be specified in the same format. UseUtilities.formatDate(date, timeZone,format)to format a date object in this format.
Google Ads scripts often write output to a spreadsheet, including date objects.When setting a cell in a spreadsheet by passing a date object, thespreadsheet's timezone is used to interpret that date. For example, suppose wehave a spreadsheet whose timezone is set to Pacific Time:
I changed the name of several C# scripts in my project. I made sure to change the class names in the file AND the name of the .cs files themselves to match. Running the project now works fine, but I get several console warnings logged saying "The referenced script on this Behaviour is missing!".
Basically, the way that I eventually ended up solving it was by opening up each scene that used those scripts, selecting the objects that used those scripts, and selecting "revert to prefab". Again, NOTHING changed when I did this. All settings in the editor remained the same. But this allowed me to save the scene, and after that it all ran with no problems.
Two of the most common things I do for all my scripts are creating a help function and a function that displays the GPL3 license statement. I like to include verbose or test modes to assist in problem determination in my scripts. In some scripts, I also pass values such as a user name, the version of Fedora to upgrade to, file names, and more.
I placed this script in my /bin directory, where personal executable files such as scripts are intended to be stored. Look at your $PATH variable, which contains /home/username/bin as one component. If the /bin directory does not exist, you can create it. Or you can just put this file wherever you want and use it from there.
Functions are called in your scripts or from the CLI by using their names, just as you would for any other command. In a CLI program or a script, the commands in the function are executed when called. Then the sequence of program flow returns to the calling entity, and the next series of program statements in that entity is executed.
Scripts are a sequence of actionsAn action is an command that can be fired. For example, turning on a light. Actions used in many places, most notably in automations and scripts.[Learn more] that Home Assistant will execute. Scripts are available as an entity through the standalone Script integration but can also be embedded in automationsAutomations in Home Assistant allow you to automatically respond to things that happen in and around your home.[Learn more] and Alexa/Amazon Echo configurations.
Some of these deadlines have passed, but you should add them to your calendar for next year as well. Also, try to read past winners to strategize what kinds of scripts win. Do they favor comedy, drama, period pieces?
The Page Turner Awards is a U.K.-based contest but they accept submissions from authors around the world. Their contest categories include options for unpublished manuscripts, young writers, and screenplays.
The Writing Mentorship Award is exciting because submissions are "unfinished" manuscripts and winners get paired up with a mentor to help cross the finish line. Any writers will tell you that sometimes that last push to the finish is the hardest part of the entire process.
One thing you may have heard about (or should know, if you don't) is a thing called The Black List. The Black List used to be a poll conducted by executives, readers, agents, and managers where they voted on their favorite spec scripts floating around the market.
Now, the Black List uses a stable of professional readers to constantly rate and promote screenplays in a database. Every day, people upload their scripts, and over time they all get read. The ones that rank well are promoted and visible to producers and executives who've registered for the service.
What kind of scripts is Hollywood looking for right now? The answer to that question is complicated and ever-changing, but there are three basic qualities producers are looking for which seem to be evergreen: heat, franchise, and diversity. And yes, I just said that scripts with heat are hot. But stick with me:

We are excited to announce AWS Glue support for running ETL (extract, transform, and load) scripts in Scala. Scala lovers can rejoice because they now have one more powerful tool in their arsenal. Scala is the native language for Apache Spark, the underlying engine that AWS Glue offers for performing data transformations.
This section shows how to create a dynamic frame that contains the GitHub records in the table that you crawled earlier. A dynamic frame is the basic data structure in AWS Glue scripts. It is like an Apache Spark data frame, except that it is designed and optimized for data cleaning and transformation workloads. A dynamic frame is well-suited for representing semi-structured datasets like the GitHub timeline.
This section describes how you can create your own functions and invoke them seamlessly to filter records. Unlike filtering with Python lambdas, Scala scripts do not need to convert records from one language representation to another, thereby reducing overhead and running much faster.
You can find more example of Scala scripts in our GitHub examples repository: -glue-samples. We encourage you to experiment with Scala scripts and let us know about any interesting ETL flows that you want to share.
Selling a script takes a lot of hard work, loads of planning, and little luck, but the good news is that people sell scripts every day. Hollywood is hungry for fresh voices and new stories. And while it can be challenging to get traction for your screenplay, there is a market for your script. Here are five essential steps you can take to sell your first screenplay.
Major studios don't usually buy original scripts from unknown writers. Sure, it can happen, but you shouldn't plan on it. The majority of original script sales actually occur directly through production companies. And that's a result of packaging that entails the perfect timing and mixture of distributor, star, producer, and director.
But don't worry, you can make a living writing and selling dramas and comedies to Lifetime, Hallmark, and other specialty channels and streaming services as well. It's not all action. And then there's the indie market to fall back on as well. These markets may not offer the same big studio six and seven-figure paychecks for spec scripts, but it's more than enough to keep you writing. And you can always hold out hope that a big production company, producer, or studio will come calling one day.
Scripting is a great tool for performing a variety of tasks. A script can be as simple as an automated common task or as complex as an entire new feature. You can create your own scripts, and you can run scripts that other people have created. For more information on scripting, see Scripting Guide, scripting requirements, and other developer resources.
The Scripting Guide contains an introduction to scripting and tutorials. You can also find a number of useful scripts that you can run, such as a script that draws guides around the selected object. Some of these scripts appear by default in the Scripts panel.
The Scripts panel is where you run scripts without leaving InDesign. The Scripts panel displays the scripts that are located in the Scripts folders in the InDesign application folder and in your Preferences folders.
The Script Label panel lets you specify a label for a page item, such as text frame or shape. Specifying labels for page items is especially useful for writing scripts in which you need to identify an object. Select Windows > Utilities > Script label to open the Script Label Panel.
Adobe maintains a repository of open source community scripts on GitHub. For more information about the InDesign Community Script repository, see the ReadMe file. This ReadMe file includes details about contributing a script and links to the scripters.
