All speakers are requested to be available for officehours during the conference. This will be a scheduled 30 minute block of time during which attendees can meet you at a designated space for open Q&A offstage.
There is only one speaker per session. Attendance is free for selected speakers. HasGeek will cover your travel to and accommodation in Bangalore from anywhere in the world for speakers delivering full sessions (30 minutes or longer). As our budget is limited, we will prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. If you are able to raise support for your trip, we will count that as speaker travel sponsorship.
HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.
If your proposal is accepted for a session > 30 minutes long, we will cover your event ticket.
If your proposal is not accepted, you can buy a ticket at the same rate as was available on the day you proposed. We’ll send you a code.
