As we have become deeply involved with Google as a company, and we are now an official G Suite reseller, my openness towards alternatives to Apple has increased. Now it’s the Google Pixelbook’s turn to compete with my MacBook. I wrote down my experiences in chronological order – a Chromebook experiment diary.
On my way to the Google Cloud Summit in Munich on December 6, 2017, I jotted down some thoughts about both Google and Microsoft. Partly to take stock and partly to work out a convincing way to explain to companies why Microsoft isn’t the only – nor the best – option, and that they should instead consider working with Google and G Suite.
Google is well known for its simpler apps for Gmail and Google Docs, but it has a great deal more to offer in the business context, especially for freelancers and small to medium businesses.
Any plan to quickly compare G Suite and Office 365 is doomed to fail from the outset. In my experience, the two products cannot be compared with a simple table and a checklist of functions. But I have attempted to give you a good broad comparison in this post!
I gave you a brief overview of the basic features of the Google App Maker in my previous post, and now I want to look at the scripting possibilities. The App Maker supports the creation of both client and server scripts.
App Maker is a browser-based development tool to create and deliver custom applications for Google G Suite both easily and reliably. Google calls the App Maker a “low-code tool”. In fact, you don’t necessarily need a developer; most of the work is done via intuitive interfaces with the tool providing useful guidance.
