NY TECH ED was extremely fortunate to be able to get some time with two experts in educational Google Apps scripting, Bjorn Behrendt and Andrew Stillman. They are the minds behind some of the most commonly used scripts in schools using GAFE including Doctopus, Goobric, and gClassFolders. The conversation covered how they got into Google Apps scripting, different ways to get started on your own, as well as overviews of some of the more useful Google Apps scripts.
To learn more about Andrew and Bjorn and some of their exciting, innovative work, you can check out Bjorn's Edlisten site as well as Andrew's YouPD site.
