Google Apps Script is a simple to use tool that can enhance Google Apps in a countless number of ways. It is based on javascript and cloud based, making it is very simple for beginners to learn. This is lowers the barrier to learning programming, allowing beginners to get started quickly.

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 and other learning materials. You will write 5-6 short scripts, 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.
