Google Calendar API and Calendar Notifier

In our research group we use google calendar for booking time slots to run experiments on a shared cluster. While calendar serves the purpose of coordinating the experiments time slots, this process can require a little bit more attention than necessary. If someone creates, modifies or deletes a booking from the shared calendar, I am unable to know about said changes without looking at the calendar myself. In order to avoid this issue I thought of building a small application that gives me a desktop notification when the said changes occur.
