Google Apps Script


  • 6:00-7:00pm Dinner and Networking

  • 7:00-8:00pm Martin Omander, Google Apps Script Introductory Session

  • 8:00-8:30pm Member Lightning Demos of Google Apps Script

Google Apps Script is a JavaScript cloud scripting language that provides easy ways to automate tasks across Google products and third party services. With Google Apps Script you can:

  • Automate repetitive business processes

  • Link Google products with third party services

  • Create custom spreadsheet functions

  • Build and collect user inputs through rich graphics interfaces and menus

Martin Omander, Developer Advocate at Google, will provide an introduction to and demo of Google Apps Script. Afterwards, group members that attended the recent
Google Apps Script Hackathon will demo their own scripts. Members that were unable to attend the recent hackathon are still welcome to participate in the lightning demo portion of the meeting. A good way to get started is to go through the
excellent online tutorials. Finally, our members are encouraged to take advantage of these other Silicon Valley GTUG resources:

    I could not make it to the code camp so was glad that you brought this talk to the meetup. Thanks so much!

    Interesting material. The guest speaker who showed his stock monitor scripts was the best part of the meetup. The main speaker's material was too remedial for such an advanced audience. More examples and less pure background material would have been better.

    Good basic overview though presenter couldn't answer many questions about software capabilities and limitations; I didn't hear an offer to follow up or pointers to resources for the answers.
