6. Search for Google Calendar API and click on Google Calendar API from the Search Result. For the second screen, click on ENABLE button.

8. Click on the Credentials from the left menu again > from top Create credentials > OAuth Client ID. Select Web Application as Application Type. Give the Web application name and set 3 authorized redirect URLs as follows

11. After click on the save changes button, you will see a button at the bottom to Authenticate in the same tab.
12. Click on the Authenticate button and you will see the OAuth consent screen. Maybe you will see the notice that the application is unsafe and the browser encourages you to cancel. But the application is made by you so you can give access to the application.
But if you want to make the application safe for the customers, you need to verify that from Google by submitting it otherwise the customers also see the unsafe notice from the browser and the customers may or maybe not proceed for their security purpose.
13. After granting access to your Google Calendar, you will see the authenticate button label is changed and showing you are authenticated.
