New courses in Tray Academy teach you the essentials of building on the Tray Platform.

We are very excited to announce our new Beginner Learning Path now available on Tray Academy, designed to get any builder up and running on the Tray Platform. Our easy-to-follow lessons teach you everything you need to know to get started on the Tray Platform and begin building your first automated workflows. 

At, our mission is to empower anyone to solve problems without the constraints of technology. We accomplish this mission with our new beginner courses by teaching you fundamental concepts in a guided, step-by-step walkthrough. As you progress through each lesson, you’ll gain a better understanding of the basic elements of the Tray platform, key concepts and terms, how to plan your integration, and higher-level concepts like logic and data transformation.
