Google Apps Script is a JavaScript cloud scripting language that provides easy ways to automate tasks across Google products and third party services. If you want to learn more about Google Apps Script, collaborate with other developers, and meet the Apps Script team, here’s your chance! We will be holding an Apps Script hackathon in Washington, DC on Wednesday, March 7 from 2pm - 8pm.

After we cover the basics of Apps Script, you can code along with us as we build a complete script, or you can bring your own ideas and get some help and guidance from the team. There will be food, power, and Apps Script experts available to help throughout the day. Just bring your laptop, ideas, enthusiasm, and basic knowledge of JavaScript. Check out out the details of the event and be sure to RSVP to let us know you’re coming.

Jan Kleinert is a Developer Programs Engineer based in NYC, focusing on helping developers get the most out of Google Apps Script. Prior to Apps Script, she worked on Commerce, helping merchants integrate with Google Checkout and on Chrome, helping developers build great web apps.

  1. When will be this issue fixed?

  2. There will not be corporate adoption or even small business adoption of this, until you create the facility of hiding the google apps script source code in google spreadsheet. Right now any user with editor access can see the source code of google apps script, so why would any programmer let his efforts and energy go waste.
    Kindly make the source code locked with password or some kind of access granting mechanism even for source code (like we give for the spreadsheet). This will be a boon for all of us

  3. second option can be putting =latex() formula in spreadsheet
    =latex("\int_0_\infty sin(x) dx")
    it will show the formula in cell as its mathematically rendered latex-like visual

    (i am not talking about equation editor, i am talking about taking latex text as value and and rendering it properly as latex like equation)

    Thanks in advance
