Google Apps Script is a simple to use tool can enhance Google Apps in a countless number of ways. It is based on javascript, and because the code is developed and run online, it is very simple for beginners to develop applications. This is significant, because if the barriers to application development are lowered, people with strong backgrounds in education (and not necessarily in computer science) could develop relevant, effective learning and productivity applications.

After this session, participants will understand what Google Apps Script is, and what it is capable of. You will know how to find and interpret documentation, and where to access tutorials other learning materials. You will create 3-4 short yet useful applications, that demonstrate how this simple tool can extend Google Apps.

This session will be very hands on, with your fingers on the keyboard, learning through exploration.
