Google Design Sprint and Apps Script for Everyone


In partnership with Google For Entrepreneurs, Impact Hub Singapore presents an evening of high grade education on two massively important topics for anyone who is building a startup or SME.

Google Design Sprint

Sacha Van Ginhoven, Google Developer Experts on Design Sprints

Developed at Google Ventures, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, design thinking and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use. Google Venture's run sprints for companies like Nest and Medium. Slack used it to redesign their Marketing proposal. Nowadays, both Multinational companies and Start-ups are picking up on this lean methodology for innovation.

Improving workflow & making the most of G Suite with Google Apps Script

Wesley Chun, Developer Advocate, G Suite

Google Apps Script is server-side JavaScript platform that gives developers high-level programmatic access to their data in G Suite/Google Apps, including being able to connect to other Google and external services. Users can automate repetitive tasks, improve their workflows, connect to other online databases and other services, and extend the functionality of Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Gmail with add-ons. This session provides a high-level overview of Google Apps Script, various use cases, and walk though several demo scripts to show you different things that you can accomplish using Apps Script. Time-permitting, we'll also cover recent product updates. Knowledge of JavaScript may be useful but not required.
