I am please to say I was able to present at SIGGRAPH 2017 the topic of Analytics and their role in creating quality and effective blender addons in the future. The playback to the presentation and materials are below.
As Blender has become more of a professional platform, we have seen an influx of quality addons (both free and paid). With more developers focusing energy on this area, it's important to know what to develop and where an addon's strengths and weaknesses lay. Without any real form of analytics, developers are blind to user behavior, needs, and wants.
Thanks to CGCookie for supporting the development of this presentations and the efforts to move forward with this area.
