Whether you’re looking for the best pizza place nearby, to optimize your web development workflow or to gain insights on how visitors are interacting with your site, Google has got you covered.
Join other girl geeks (and boys!) at Google Toronto to gain insights on how to leverage Chrome Developer Tools and Google Analytics to make the most out of your next web-based project.
Hanoi Morillo from Google Toronto will be speaking about how Google Analytics can be used to measure sales and conversions on your site or application. She will also discuss how you can use Analytics to find out how visitors use your site, how they arrived on your site, and how you can keep them coming back.
Ali Honarvar will be providing insights on how Chrome’s Developer Tools allow you to easily and efficiently test and debug code to make your workflow that much smoother. You’ll also learn how to gain deep access into the internals of Chrome and your web application.
By the end of the night, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge to build, analyze and optimize your new site or application with Google tools. You’ll also be able to tell your friends and family you had the chance to check out Google’s office – exciting, right?

SYPA (Stuff You'll Probably Ask)
You: What time do the presentations start?
Us: Doors open at 6:30pm and we aim to begin the discussion at 7:00pm. Before and after the talks, there are opportunities for conversation, and the enjoyment of drinks and hors d'oeuvres.
You: Why is there a $10 charge?
Us: Some months we get help (sponsorship) with food and drink and some months we organize this ourselves. We usually make a small loss, but don't mind, because we're really passionate about the meetup and network.
