A scripting language is a programming language that supports scripts, programs written for a special run-time environment that automate the execution of tasks that could alternatively be executed one-by-one by a human operator. Scripting languages are often interpreted (rather than compiled). Primitives are usually the elementary tasks or API calls, and the language allows them to be combined into more complex programs. Environments that can be automated through scripting include software applications, web pages within a web browser, the shells of operating systems (OS), embedded systems, as well as numerous games. A scripting language can be viewed as a domain-specific language for a particular environment; in the case of scripting an application, this is also known as an extension language.

Oh, here's another technology I'd like to learn: Google Apps Scripting. There's a lot of common things I do with Google Docs & Sheets on a regular basis and being able to automate some of it seems pretty handy. I know EE has a ton of great stuff about VBA scripting for Excel, Word, and such, but I mostly work in Google Apps and I've had no info at all about scripting for those products. (I honestly expected the Google apps might not have been mature enough to support scripting, but I was completely wrong about that!)

Just looked up Google's documentation site for it, and the whole thing is based on JavaScript (I'm not good at JavaScript, but I'm at least familiar with some basics). That also means I've got plenty of experts in-office and on the site for when I need help :-)

Will have to start experimenting with it this weekend!

I'm having issues finding how to push Adobe Standard via script. I can push the software out, however, I don't know how to push the key out with the install. Any help would be great. I am deploying it to about 97 PCs. in our organization.
