Matthew (or BotosCloud, his twitter handle and our nickname for him) is the Mobile Development Manager at Maven's Consulting, one of our most recent CloudSpokes challenge sponsors.  He put up a great post on the Maven's blog detailing the winners for their  Google Analytics CloudSpokes Challenge - and we wanted to share.  Congrats to sgurumurthy on the win!

Mavens recently sponsored a CloudSpokes challenge to build an admin-friendly app for our open source Toolkit for Google Analytics, and we're excited to announce the winners!

Our judges had a tough time choosing between the entries and the final scores were very close, showing just how strong the community has become.

In second place, Jatin Jain (jazzyrocksr) delivered a nice interface that included a multi-select list for choosing which metrics to import, which offered lots of possibilities for expansion.

In first place, Shashidhar Gurumurthy (sgurumurthy) set his entry apart with great documentation and a bonus feature of being able to search for site settings by name.

The judges really appreciated the detailed documentation, which is key for a successful open source project. Here's a screenshot of the final result of the challenge; a Google Analytics Dashboard populated entirely with clicks, not code:

Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who participated! 

You can install the winning package or download the source code from Toolkit for Google Analytics on GitHub.
