      Group of UXD looking at analytics

      Google Analytics offer rich insight into the behavior of your users but they can be intimidating for those who don’t know how to leverage them. 

      As part presentation and part hands-on activity, this event is designed to get you up and running with the best reports for user experience design professionals.  Initially, we’ll walk through each report to fully understand it and then practice interpreting it using sample data.  Be sure to bring a laptop/tablet to get the most out of this session.
