I would love to know the origin of the "Sing like no one is listening" when you publish a container. +Brian Kuhn ?

Unfortunately, I can't take credit for this. Credit goes to Marc Hemeon, our UX designer at the time. He put this in one of the early mocks for GTM v2, and the team all got a kick out of it. Most of us thought it would never make it into the final product, but 6 months later, it was still there :)

With the introduction of Autotrack (http://analytics.blogspot.com/2016/02/introducing-autotrack-for-analyticsjs.html), I'm left wondering if GTM will provide the ability to leverage the plugins and tasks features of analytics.js within the tag templates.

How 'bout it, +Brian Kuhn ?
The web has changed a lot since the early days of Google Analytics. Back then, most websites actually consisted of individual pages, and moving from one page to the next involved clicking a link and making a full-page request. With sites like this, it's possible to track the majority of relevant ...

Just published a blog post detailing how to replicate the features of "autotrack" within GTM: http://bit.ly/1U3GRuy

For the past 3+ years, we have not implemented Google Analytics without GTM for any of our clients. We regularly implement "auto"-tracking for outbound links, form submissions, URL changes, and more using the event listening features of GTM. And where there isn't yet a native trigger, we have not encountered any limitations using custom HTML tags and custom JavaScript variables.

Would love to have your thoughts on this post, +Simo Ahava and +Phil Pearce .

Tips for Getting a Job in the Digital Analytics Industry
/via +LunaMetrics  #measure   #analytics  

"All hiring comes down to three questions:

- Does the applicant want to do the job?
- Can the applicant do the job?
- Would we like working with the applicant?

The thing is: There is no high bar to entry. We’re not looking for everyone to have a Master’s degree in Math or Information Science (although we have those people, too). Most of the skills we use can be learned for free, online, and with practice."
Want to come work for us? Great! We've got some tips for how to make a lasting impression!

Creating Dashboards with Google Analytics

I have been playing quite a lot with the dashboard feature in Google Analytics. There are some pretty cool charts that are just waiting for you there... and they are full of insights!
In this article you will learn how to use Google Analytics Dashboards, they are a great way to keep track of your website. It can save a lot of time on your (and your colleagues) day-to-day so it is certainly worth to invest some time to have the right data in there.

A really excellent tutorial from +Adrian Rosebrock's PyImageSearch blog: how to access multiple cameras attached to your Raspberry Pi using a single Python script, and perform real-time motion detection on each of them using OpenCV. You can use either multiple USB cameras, or the Raspberry Pi camera module with additional USB cams.
Learn how to access *multiple cameras* (including USB webcams and the Raspberry Pi camera module) using your Raspberry Pi, Python, and OpenCV.

Running Semi-Automated Tasks on Google Analytics

This is a very cool idea to perform repetitive tasks in Google Analytics by using the Management API inside the Google Chrome Console. Pretty clean and quick!
Tired of manually clicking through the Google Analytics interface to retrieve data? Want to take advantage of the Google Management API, but the functions you need just aren't available? Well then, read this article to learn an easy way to perform such tasks in a semi-automated way.

This has been a long time in the making, and now it's finally here! I'm especially excited about the new recipes section of our site, where we share containers that you can import into your GTM to track things like:

- scroll behavior
- YouTube videos
- file downloads
- outbound link clicks

and more!

We've written a book, Practical Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager for Developers, and launched a free section of downloadable GTM Recipes!

Very helpful baristas - they took the time to explain the chemex pour-over method to me, and recommended several different beans (and explained the different characteristics of each). Well worth the 20 block walk!
