Announcing the chartbeat-Google Analytics mashup competition

April 23rd, 2009 by Tony

As we’ve said before, we see chartbeat as a great complement to Google Analytics, combining our real-time capabilities with their analysis of the archive. To celebrate Google Analytics opening their API to the public we’d like to announce the chartbeat mashup contest! The rules are simple: use the chartbeat and Google Analytics APIs to do something interesting, useful, unique. Every legitimate entry to the competition gets chartbeat shwag in the form of a chartbeat t-shirt.  And for the best of the best, we have something even better:
  • First prize: an Amazon Kindle and the chance to pitch to and get business feedback from John Borthwick, founder of Betaworks.
  • Two runner up prizes: a Flip Mino HD
The contest runs from now until 11:59pm on Friday, 22 May Friday, 26 June and the submission process is dead simple.  Just post a comment to this blog entry containing a succinct description, and a link to the code or project home page. Here are the chartbeat API docs and here are the Google API docs. Get mashing!
