The Google Analytics App Gallery includes many 3rd party solutions -- now, Google has made available a new "Google Analytics Easy Dashboard Library," to help developers build a custom solution.

In short, the "Google Analytics Easy Dashboard Library makes it easy to use the Google Analytics API by distilling the process into three easy steps," posted Google Analytics API Team.

1. Register with Google APIs Console;
2. Copy and paste the JavaScript code.
3. Configure this code to query your data and choose a chart type to visualize it.

Here's a quick example -- showing creating a line chart plotting visitors and visits for the last 30 days. Besides including the library, the only code required is -- using the following code will create the chart below (see pic):

Also, Google I/O 2012 will be helding from June 27-29. This year's I/O Extended and I/O Live will be even bigger and better, with more I/O Extended locations and more sessions streamed live on developers.google.com/io (its her Google will be posting the livestream schedule, as well as the video feed).

This year, Google doubled the number of sessions that will be streamed, and will be featuring 4 channels of programming. All sessions, including those not livestreamed, will be recorded and will be available online within 48 hours.

Google also revealed that "in 2011, Google I/O hosted 5,500 developers from 65 countries in San Francisco, but this audience was dwarfed by the more than 1 million developers from 161 countries tuning in via livestream."
