Flex your mashup muscle with Salesforce.com's Ajax proxy and Google data APIs by working through this new tutorial on using Google data on Salesforce.com.
This article is a great place to get up to speed if you're new to Salesforce.com application development. The tutorial uses an existing Salesforce.com mashup with Google Calendar to help set up your development environment and to show how companies can find apps you write and integrate them into Salesforce.com using the AppExchange. You'll also learn how to write your own application by creating a mashup that exports Salesforce.com contacts into a spreadsheet in Google Docs.
If you hit a snag while working through the tutorial, you can post your issue in the Google Docs data APIs forum, or in the Salesforce.com discussion boards.
