Take the new GA Demos & Tools site for a spin. 
As a member of the Google Analytics Developer Relations team, I often hear from our community that they want to do more with GA but don't always know how. They know the basics but want to see full examples and demos that show how things should be built. Well, we've been listening, and today I'm ...

Great overview of the +Google Analytics Embed API

Excellent post by +Linda Lawton on why the Embed API is a powerful and EASY way to create customized dashboards even if you don't know much Javascript. 
The Embed API isn't just a javascript library mashed up with Google Charts, or is it? It might be, but what really grabbed my attention is that it is EASY, you can have a dashboard laid out and set up in a matter of minutes, even if you don't know much Javascript.

If you're using Cross Domain Auto Linking you may not have noticed this addition. It's possible to use Regular Expressions for hostname matching. Some of you have asked about this before...for example: ga('linker:autoLink', [/^example\.(com|net)$/]);

Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.
Google I/O 2013 brings together thousands of developers for three days of deep technical content focused on building the next generation of web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Google Chrome, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.

If you've ever tried to track an event just before a user navigates away from your website or downloads a PDF, without delaying the navigation, you should checkout out the useBeacon field. Just keep in mind the behavior depending on browser support. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/navigator.sendBeacon

A new resource for mobile developers interested in or already using Google Analytics. Please let us know if you have any feedback or would like to see more of this type of content.
 
New Mobile App Implementation Guide for Developers

Google Analytics for mobile apps provides a platform to measure user interactions, allowing you to better understand and optimize user engagement with your app.

The default implementation of Google Analytics will automatically provide key information about your app such as the number of users and session, session duration, operating systems, device models, etc.

We recently launched a brand new mobile app implementation guide explaining how you can implement additional Google Analytics features to better understand your users and their behavior.

If you're building custom account/property/view selectors this will make development much easier.
 
Developers: new Account Summary feature in the Management API

If you’ve ever worked with accounts, properties, or views using the Management API (http://goo.gl/jkO3Ai), then you’ll want to check out the new Account Summary resource. You can use it to build a custom account selector or to quickly lookup accounts, properties, and views (Profiles). See what else you can do: http://goo.gl/fqgglR
