Google Developers Blog: Building solutions using the G Suite developer platform

Millions of users know G Suite as a collection of communication and productivity apps that enables teams to easily create, communicate, collaborate, and discover content to supercharge teamwork. Beneath the surface of this well-serving collection of apps is also an extensible platform that enables developers to build targeted custom experiences and integrations utilizing these apps, allowing G Suite’s vast user base to get even more value out of the platform. At first glance, it may not be natural to think of the tools you use for day-to-day productivity and collaboration as a developer platform. But consider what makes up a developer platform; Languages, APIs, runtimes, frameworks, IDEs, ecosystem, etc; G Suite offers developers all of these things and more. Let’s take a closer look at what makes up the G Suite developer platform and how you can use it.

Nice overview of the G Suite developer platform from Charles Maxson. I always find it useful to see how others pitch the platform and from this piece useful to see how Apps Script is put in context with other G Suite development options.
