v2009 Hack Day Videos and Webinar

Monday, February 22, 2010

We recently finished the last of our AdWords API Hack Days in Europe, and it was great to see so many AdWords API developers come out for these events. We realize that not everyone could attend one of the Hack Days in person, so we've been working on new ways to get this information out to a wider audience. First, more of the presentations are now available on YouTube:

Second, we'll be holding a webinar that will include a condensed version of the topics covered in the Hack Days. This webinar is for developers, so please register only if you work with code and the API.

60 days left to migrate to v200909

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Last month we reminded you that on April 22 most v13 services will be turned off. In 60 days, the following v13 services will no longer be accessible:

These three v13 services will continue to be accessible until the same functionality is available in the new AdWords API later this year:
Don't worry, we won't sunset these services until their replacements have been available for at least four months.

To help you migrate your application, we've demonstrated how your code can simultaneously use the remaining v13 services and the new v2009 services. Here are some examples: Java, .NET, Python, and Ruby.

Please continue to post your migration questions and feedback on the Developer Forum.
