Automate All The Things! (with Google AppScript)

Google AppScript is a fully hosted (and free) service that you can use to perform automated actions on your Google services (Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar, BigQuery etc), as well as interact with other external (non-google) services via API.

The Infrastructure Analytics group in ITS at UNCG uses AppScript as a supplement to our official data pipelines, but AppScript can also be used on a personal level to collect information about your own gmail/calendar/drive activity and contents, or perform a more complex series of related actions.

In this presentation, we'll walk through a few simple examples, as well as some more complex workflows that attendees can implement immediately. Code will be shared via git repo, so attendees can get started with their own Google accounts.
