As you all know I am a windows developer, most of what is either background services or windows desktop applications. I have also been working with Google Analytics for a number of years now. One of the issues I have had is that there was no SDK for windows. There is an Android SDK and an IOS SDK but there was nothing for windows developers. I have spoken with the Google Analytics team about this for a number of years and their opinion was that it wasn’t a priority. Understandable considering we are talking Microsoft VS Google here. Over the years i have created a few simple trackers myself to address the issue but they were never something i was willing to opensource myself. Nor did i feel up to the task of creating an SDK from scratch alone.
A few months ago the Google Analytics team informed me that they were contacted by Microsoft and told that they were working on an SDK. I jumped at the chance to assist them. The project is now live on Github.
There is also a Getting started page which is part of the documentation wiki on the project. I will be working on extending the documentation over the next several weeks to ensure that the SDK is fully documented. You can of course expect a number of tutorials on this from me in the figure.
We FINALLY have an official Google Analytics Windows SDK!
