I have a wealth of Google Apps API experience: as well as the more common ones for Spreadsheet, GMail, Docs and Calendar, I have also worked with the more obscure JDBC, OAuth, Trigger and Properties Services. Along with my general developer knowledge, this allows me to produce robust, well documented scripts, pulling together all the common elements very quickly and making full use of the available GAS libraries: I am familiar with TwilioGAS and ArrayLib, and use BetterLog, underscoreGS and my own assertGS as a matter of course. More technical information about my development process can be found in this article I wrote: bit.ly/GAS_Best_Practices.
Whilst we are working together I will make it a priority that at any point in time you are happy with how the project is developing. I will share my work journal with you (Google Doc of course) and you will be able to track my hours with the oDesk time tracker app. Interim progress reports can be supplied as requested and I develop and test in small chunks, so there will always be something tangible for you to review. I can also be available on the instant messenger of your choice.
My major Google Apps Script projects to date have been:
* Rose Task Manager (bit.ly/rose-task-manager), a team task manager in a Google spreadsheet that uses Google Calendar to schedule regular events and also has various email features. I have just finished converting this to an automatically installing Google Add-on soon to be available in the Google Web Store.
* I have added significant features (numeric range answers, bit.ly/flubaroo-ranges, and auto-grading, bit.ly/flubaroo-autograde) and refactoring to Flubaroo (flubaroo.com), an open source quiz grading script presently the second most downloaded Add-ons.
