NY GDG May Meetup

FEATURED TALK: 

Topic: "Understanding the user on and off line with Google Analytics"  (Speaker: Nico Miceli, GDE for Google Analytics) 

Nico will discuss ways that you can use the new version of Google Analytics (universal analytics) to measure the real engagement of your users, create new custom metrics, track off site activities in Google Analytics and ways to track the same user across devices.

(About Nico) Nico Miceli is the Technical Analytics Lead at SEER Interactive and a Google Developer Expert for Google Analytics. He specializes in user behavior analysis and technical analytics. He loves data driven marketing, quantifying himself, and MOOCs.


DEV TALK: 

Topic: "Real Time Captioning With Plover" (Speaker: Mirabai Knight - Founder of StenoKnight CART Services and creator of Plover, the Open Source Stenography Program). 

Plover is the first open source stenographic engine, allowing people to type at over 240 words per minute. This has huge implications for both captioning accessibility and wearable computing (especially when paired with Glass), and might also be of interest to anyone who wants to be more fluent and efficient while inputting prose, code, or other text. 

Mirabai will be joined during Q&A by Hesky Fisher, the Lead Programmer for Plover.


LIGHTNING TALK: 

Topic: "Polymer: Building blocks for the web" (Speaker: Jeffrey Posnick, Google)

Polymer is a library that uses the latest web technologies to let you create custom HTML elements. Build anything from a button to a complete application as an encapsulated, reusable element that works across desktop and mobile. 


LIGHTNING TALK: 

Topic: "Gaming with Chromecast? Not So Fast" (Speaker:  Jason Van Anden, Artist, Activist, Technologist - and GDG New York member)

Jason will share his misadventures tinkering with ChromeCast as an arcade style interactive medium. He plans to shed light on what ChromeCast is good for .. and not so much, A Demo will be made available so you can try it yourself (screenshot provided below)

    Will the featured talk on Google Analytics be focused on website analytics or mobile?

    2 · May 21, 2014

    • Nico M.

      Hi Chaitanya, thanks for the interest! I will be going over the big new features and some good ways to think about analytics. Most of my code examples are going to be in HTML/ JS but all the ideas and topics can be used for ios and Android. And there is a big shift towards web and mobile being United and I do go over cross device management. Are you more Web or mobile focused?

      Thanks for the answers guys, I'm more interested in the Web component but would be interested in the cross device management too.

    I realize the RSVPs are close but says 27 spots left. <dumbQ>Can I just show up there? </dumbQ>

  • Daniel N G.

    Do we have to RSVP for this event anywhere else besides here?

    Are GDG talks videotaped? Will this one be taped? I thought they were, being at Google who is so generous in their videotaping. However I cannot find any youtubes?

    2 · May 26, 2014

    • Marco P.

      I think there is a separate merit for videos of the gdg meetup presentations and q&a. Otherwise I agree with allen

    During my talk, I'll probably be doing a short demo of what captioning currently looks like on Glass. If anyone there will be wearing Glass and wants to input the URL ahead of time so they can follow along, it'll be:

    http://stenoknight.com/g

    (I've found that http://www.url2glass.com works well.)

      I think that the fact that each effort leads to disjointed video recordings in many locations is quite annoying.

    Hi all - I'm excited to add another lightning talk to the agenda, this one from Jason who will talk about ChromeCast and its usage/limitations for interactive arcade-style games.

    And there's a demo to be played with :-)

    ** Updated RSVP Settings **

    I realized the original RSVP settings had incorrectly allowed for +2 guests. That has been changed (we typically require folks to RSVP directly). So if you had a +1 or +2 on your RSVP before this, do consider having them RSVP independently so we can have first/last names on the RSVP.

    Sorry about this!
