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.
Idea - Should I make it alive or just leave it? Market research is your starting point!
Core benefit of this session will be understending potential of your idea. It will show you how to do Market Research, how to measure value of your idea and how to calculate potential benefits from it. Also session will help you understand situation on the market before launching your app and help you understand potential customers and how to approach them. Main point of Market Research is to save your time in future and session will answer questions “Is my idea going to bi hit?”.
I am sure you all have a lot of ideas in your head which you would like to transfer into the app, however you don’t know which of them really is going to be worthy developing. Many developers just skip doing Market Research before they start developing their apps. It is completely wrong decision, if idea sounds amazing to you it doesn’t mean that it is really amazing. Market Research helps you understand real value of your app compared to cometition. Session will be interactive,concrete examples will be given through some popular apps but I will concentrate on app which is lunched by my company, name of app is Magic Stories. Through this concrete example I will explain you how Market Research is important and which steps you need to undertake in order to make it. I ll be talking about process of transforming your idea to paper and comparing it with competitors. Finaly at the end I ll give you some useful tips in Market Research which really worked for me.
No requirements, just good will and understanding basic principles of business.
