Through Google Documents, Google provides amazing web based tools for students, businesses, and educators. During a Google Developer Group meeting at Mercer University, I was introduced to a cool programming technology enabling developers to customize Google App experiences using JavaScript.   Using Google App Script, you can automate tasks and connect Google products to together. You can also connect apps to third-party data sources and API's.

Hello everyone! I'm Stephen Finney. I'm a computer science student at Mercer University and I love technology. I'm glad that you're here.

At GDG, it's our hope that the tools and software we showcase every week will positively affect your experience as a developer. There's a lot of cool things going on in the world of technology, and it's our mission to share them with you.

As a developer, I get the most excited when my work is able to impact people in a meaningful way.

Hello world!  My name is Michael Rosario.   I serve the Mercer University Google Developer Group (GDG) as a mentor.   The Mercer GDG serves software developers, engineers and designers in the middle Georgia area through education and community building events.   In the Fall of 2013, we have hosted sessions on the following topics:
In general, the group studies and teaches technologies connected to the very unique ethos of Google culture.   As computer professionals, we work in a wildly exciting area.  Armed with the right software and resourcefulness, we convert ideas into systems that serve businesses, nonprofits, and communities.    You don’t need big expensive tools or materials.   You don’t need permission.   You need passion and the persistence to see the idea through the creative/engineering process.  I believe that this process is a balance of art, leadership, and science.
Starting With WHY
As we start our blog for the GDG, I wanted to share my favorite principles from Google’s culture.    I enjoy exploring the “WHY” or belief structures of businesses and nonprofits.   It’s fun to find find nuggets of truth that I can adopt into my design processes.
