I used Apps Script for the first time during an internship. My teammates where wasting their time, trying to manage events registration by email. I built an event management system and realized that this script could help many people. So I published my first template
. And then I published another one, and many more after. Some of them have been reused thousands of times.
I’ve done trainings and seminars on Apps Script so that more people could make more scripts and automate more tasks. But the goal is not for everybody to learn how to script. The goal is for everybody to be able to benefit from Apps Script.
I want to demonstrate that companies who have gone Google would benefit from putting together a community of scripters ready to help their fellow workers and spread the word: Don't hate. Automate.
