adCockpit v1.0 (Amsterdam) released
Version 1.0, code name Amsterdam, of the adCockpit application was released today.
This first release is able to retrieve AppNexus network-billing_report data for multiple AppNexus members and display such data in graphs on the application’s main dashboard. Development of this application was started in August 2014, and after an internal alpha testing phase and a closed beta phase, this is the first release open to a wider audience.
Most of the work that went into the first release is not visible on the outside of the application. It involves laying the groundwork, to be able to access the AppNexus API, to trigger reports to be run, to wait for these reports to complete, to retrieve the reporting data being returned, to process the data that was received and store in in the local database. This release also implements to graphical user interface, and the functionality for the creation and management of usernames. Finally, the application is capable of handling multiple sub domains, each whit labeled with a customer specific logo and favicon.
