Google Technology User Group

Title: Manchester Google Technology User Group

Start Time: 19:00

End Time: 21:00

This month we’re back with a vengeance and the subject will be “Ad-hoc Data Workflows with Google Apps Script”.

Google Apps Script is becoming more and more powerful, and more and more useful, as the list of APIs available increases on a regular basis.

DJ Adams will be giving a presentation on real world uses of Apps Script in the area of monitoring, demoing a live example of using the Gmail and Spreadsheet services to build a loosely coupled data collection, parsing and graphing mechanism for system loads stats.

Find out how data is sent to Gmail, organised with labels, processed with Apps Script using the Gmail API, and written to a spreadsheet, all in the background. Once it’s in a spreadsheet, the graphing is a piece of cake!

See you there!

Google Technology User Group

Title: Manchester Google Technology User Group

Theme: Physical Book Annotation Project (Next Steps) and Google Visualization API

Ok, so we got a little distracted (in a nice way) by Android App Inventor, and hacking on our Android-powered phones, but this time it’s coding for real! We didn’t quite make our first QR code and first book scan – perhaps we’ll do it this time. And everyone seems to be bringing their laptops this time, so get ready for some serious fun, or some serious design and coding. Or are they the same thing?

In case we get bored, I’ve also been looking at the Google Visualization API, and unless anyone has anything they’d prefer to speak about or hear, I don’t mind forcing your attention on this beautiful little set of data-orientated eye-candy utilities.

Be there!
