When we originally launched this blog in 2005, we sought to provide you with the most up-to-date information on the AdWords API, as well as useful resources to help with API development. Recently, we’ve realized that the content we produce can be shared between multiple Ads API developer communities and for this reason we have decided to create one central blog. With this in mind, we’ll now be posting on the new Google Ads Developer blog. There, you’ll also find information on our AdSense API, DoubleClick for Publishers API, DoubleClick for Advertisers API, and Google AdMob SDK products.
If you’re a subscriber of this blog, your feed will automatically be redirected, so you won’t have to do a thing to keep getting the latest news. If you decide you’d like to subscribe to a particular label on the new blog (for example, only receive those posts labeled as “adwords_api“), you can choose to do that as well. Also, the old content of this blog is not going anywhere and will continue to be available, even after we switch to the new blog.
The Ads Developer blog will continue to be run by the same team, bringing you all the information you need as an ads developer. We look forward to seeing you over at http://googleadsdeveloper.blogspot.com/.

Google+ Hangouts have proven to be a great way to connect people and engage with an audience, something the Google Developer Relations team is very passionate about. In that spirit we’re going to start holding office hours for the AdWords API using Hangouts, the first of which will be on November 16th from 1-2PM EST (10-11AM PST). Unlike our workshop events which have agendas prepared beforehand, these office hours will be entirely focused on your questions and feedback, so please come prepared with any technical or implementation topics you’d like to discuss. With the v201109 release and the reports migration we’re confident there will be plenty to talk about.
To join the hangout you’ll need to have a Google+ account (sign up here) and the Google voice and video plugin installed (download available for Windows, Mac, and Linux). Hangouts are currently limited to ten people at a time, so if you aren’t able to join right away please try again later in the hour as a slot may have opened up. Additional information about Hangouts is available in the Google+ Help Center.
Let us know you’re planning to attend by clicking the “I’ll be there” button on the developers.google.com page for this event. We’re still deciding how often to hold office hours, so if you’d like to see more of them make sure you show your support by registering and attending. Plans for sessions in Europe and Asia-friendly timezones are also in the works, so stay tuned for more details. We look forward to talking with you face-to-face, but until then you can reach us on the AdWords API forum with any comments or questions.
