Big data isn’t just for those who can wrangle Hadoop or wrestle with R. Service interfaces (APIs) make it easy for even the relative novice explorer some creative solutions. Working for an innovation centre I often find the need to quickly glue together service APIs to gain some insight from the data flowing around our sector. More often than not I turn to Google Sheets (Spreadsheets) and Google Apps Script to rapidly develop dashboards I can share with colleagues. It’s reassuring to see I’m not the only one who uses this approach.
