Google Developer Group Los Angeles Message Board › Apps Script Hackathon at Google LA Next Tuesday!
Hey Los Angeles! There's a special event coming up next week that you need to know about — a hackathon that focuses on Google Apps Script, that Google is hosting at their LA offices!
Trust me, once you start using Apps Script, you're going to find a lot of uses for it. I didn't know anything about it before I was challenged to use it in last year's Last Call for Google I/O. In just an hour and a half, I was able to put together a slick spreadsheet that used a brand-new third-party API I'd been wanting to try out, and my hack actually won me a ticket to Google I/O! These days, I'm still finding uses for Apps Script, most recently to double-check an address list by popping up a Google Map with pushpins for each location.
The hackathon is on Tuesday next week, starting at 2 PM and going strong until 8 PM, with food, drinks, power and wifi provided, so just bring your laptop and an interest in hacking Apps Script!
