Derek Antrican, a senior mechanical engineering major at Cedarville University, developed a program to make Google Calendar easier to use and more personalized.
In Google Calendar, changing the details of a recurring event is a one-step process, but altering 50 unrelated events previously meant doing each one individually. Antrican, originally from Salem, Oregon, came up with the idea for this program a few years ago when he was trying to organize his class schedule. He had downloaded his schedule from Cedarville’s website into his Google Calendar, but noticed that the class names were still labeled by the numbers used online rather than the actual names of the classes. With his program, he was able to edit his schedule quickly.
