Final schedule Nov 8th, 2013

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.

Commitment to open source

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.

Non Accepted Proposals

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.

Code less Do more, lets create great app with other's code

Submitted Oct 17, 2013

With thousands of application developers out there, there is a chance that some one has already done things which you are looking for, don’t reinvent the wheel. In this talk we will see different libraries which are available freely with us to rapidly develop an twitter/G+ clone.

We will see how we can use bootstartpped code to rapidly kick of application development with all the bolier code in place. We will use 8 different libraried to creat awesome twitter app with as less coding as possible.

Code less Do more.


Have you heard ActionBarSherlock or want’s to have asynchronus image loading in your application, do you want to have same card based look and feel into your android app just like google play?? or you think the new navigation drawer pattern is cool and you want it in your app??

With 100’s and 1000’s of different libraries available out there, it became very easy to add features which are standard. This libraries not only make your work easier and faster but are often implimented by best brains with all the standards in practice, using this approach we can focus on core logic of application and leave the basic bolier plate coding behind.

In this session we will go step by step implimenting a twitter/G+ clone adding functionalities using 8 different libraries. This session will show you how to work with this libraries and create any application rapidly with minimal coding at your end. This are some of the libraries we will be looking into

=> Actionbar Compact/Actionbar sherlock
=> A sync http library for REST and json parsing
=> Adapter Kit to simplyfy custom adapters
=> Picaso for async image loading
=> Pull to refresh
=> Navigation Drawer
=> Card Lib for card layout
=> ShowCase View to create app tutorial

If time permits we will show how newer projects like androidbootstrap gives you lot of boiler code ready to kickstart your android apps.


Basic knowledge of Android Application Development, how to use different libraries in android.
