hi

google just announced an app maker tool for G suite

https://techcrunch.com/2016/11/30/google-launches-app-maker/
and
https://blog.google/products/g-suite/customize-your-g-suite-experience-app-maker-and-recommended-apps/

i'm looking for resources to expand coding and computer science in middle /
high school
the video makes it look pretty simple
and the developer types have fun toys
and maybe students could develop a real product that your school could use

you have to submit an application as an early adopter
which i did yesterday
so we shall see

thanks
gr
