Ever wanted to learn more about Google Analytics APIs? Maybe even have someone talking to you about how to use them? Well, if you haven’t gotten a chance to tune in, we’re excited to present Google Analytics on Google Developers Live. Our Developer Relations team has been hard at work putting these together; we’ve done a few already, and also have some coming up that we’re excited about!

We'll be doing these a few times a month, on Thursdays at 10AM PDT (full schedule here). Each show is about a half hour.


The show will either take you “Behind the Code” or “Off the Charts.” Off the Charts is a series about getting into the deep features of Google Analytics, understanding how it works, things you can do with it and how to use the feature itself. “Behind the Code” will not only showcase new GA features and technology, but also take us behind the scenes and give you a chance to hear directly from some of the engineers, product managers, and others who work behind the scenes to design, build, and deliver these new features.


Here’s some of our favorites from the past:

Off the Charts: Google Analytics superProxy


Google Analytics superProxy is an open source project developed by the Google Analytics Developer Relations team. Join Developer Advocate Pete Frisella to learn how to use this application to publicly share your Google Analytics reporting data and power your own custom dashboards and widgets.

Behind the Code: Analytics Mobile SDK


The new Google Analytics Mobile SDK empowers Android and iOS developers to effectively collect user engagement data from their applications to measure active user counts, user geography, new feature adoption and many other useful metrics. Join Analytics Developer Program Engineer Andrew Wales and Analytics Software Engineer Jim Cotugno for an unprecedented look behind the code at the goals, design, and architecture of the new SDK to learn more about what it takes to build world-class technology.


Don’t forget to check out next week’s show (8/29, 10AM PDT) on the recently launched Metadata API, which contains all the dimensions and metrics that you can query with in Google Analytics Reporting APIs. We’ll be discussing how you can use this API to to simplify data discovery. Tune in here!
