Mindset Blog: Tips for Creating a Google Apps Script/SAP Mashup

" We recently submitted our product CloudShuttle to the Chrome web store for Google Sheets add-ons. Am I tired? Yes. Did I spend a few too many late nights in front of a code editor? Yes. Would I do it again? One hundred bajillion percent yes. So, having spent the last few month with my head way inside the process to integrate Google docs with an SAP backend through NetWeaver Gateway, I humbly offer a few tips to the blogosphere for anyone wanting to do the same thing.

OPINION: Why We Are Misunderstanding the Chromebook iPad Debate (EdSurge News) | Technology News | Scoop.it
Stop me if you have heard this argument before.We have decided to buy Chromebooks for our students because they do 90% of what students can do on a typical computer at 1/3 the cost.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:
I thought this was a good article to share. Essentially, iPads and Chromebooks should not be compared and are not alike. Both have their strengths. Both have excellent value for teaching and learning.

Cloud computing and applications offered on the cloud, can be and will be as good as what can be installed on a desktop. It is just a matter of transition and time before more and more developers adapt to the changing technology environments. A wonderful time to be a developer and use your creative talents to raise application functionality to new heights. Happy Cloud Computing!

Release Notes September 30, 2014 - Google Apps Script — Google Developers

September 30, 2014 Highlights include: * Added the LinearOptimizationService, which allows scripts to model and solve linear and mixed-integer linear programs. * Add-ons for Google Sheets and Docs can now use most installable triggers, although they still cannot use time-driven triggers (sometimes called clock triggers). * Added an installable open trigger for Google Docs. Like the installable open triggers for Sheets and Forms, this trigger is similar to the simple onOpen() trigger, but allows the triggered function to call services that require authorization, if the user has authorized the script ahead of time. * Added several new ScriptApp methods, classes, and enums to support installable triggers in add-ons: * The UiService widget DocsListDialog now requires that you call DocsListDialog.setOAuthToken(oAuthToken) before calling DocsListDialog.showDocsPicker().

The USB Implementers Forum will now take the Type-C spec and start building devices, cables, and adapters that support the new reversible connector.

No more getting the USB cable the wrong way 50% of the time or worse - if you need a flashlight to get to the back of the computer, like I do.

 

As the desktop world gets more wireless, the USB 3.1 might become the last cable to keep around the desk. Connecting your smart desk to your smart monitor, or something like that.

It is a power cable that can do 'extra stuff'.
