Come to Droidcon India 2015 to discuss how you’ve tackled each of these issues.

Criteria to submit

You must be a practising developer or designer and are expected to present original work that your peers — this event’s audience — recognise as being notable enough to deserve a stage.

If you are excited about someone’s work and believe it deserves wider recognition, we recommend you contact them and ask them to submit a proposal.

Selection Process

Proposals will be filtered and shortlisted by an Editorial Panel. We will notify you if your proposal is shortlisted. We urge you to add links to videos / slide decks when submitting proposals. This will help us understand your past speaking experience. Blurbs or blog posts covering the relevance of a particular problem statement and how it is tackled, will help the Editorial Panel better judge your proposals.

Proposers must submit presentation drafts as part of the selection process to ensure that the talk is in line with the theme of the conference, and to help the editorial panel build a strong line-up for the event.

There is only one speaker per session. Entry is free for selected speakers. HasGeek will provide a bursary to cover part of your travel and accommodation in Bangalore. Bursaries are limited and made available to speakers delivering full sessions (40 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.

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.

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.

We are no longer accepting proposals. The deadline for submissions was Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

Enhancing UI/UX using Java animations

Submitted Oct 2, 2015

Android provides various animation classes which can be used from XML or Java but for if you are looking to provide a truly unique experience to the user when using your app, you will have to divert from regular animations to create unique animations tailored with the brand and functioning of your app. This is where specific animations built purely in Java comes into play. In this talk, I will be aiming to cover all the basics that are required to create animations in Java.

Outline

I will cover the following topics in this talk:

1 . Animations using Custom views and Canvas-

a) Approach for creating custom animations.
b) Creating custom views to hold our animations.
c) Draw our animations on Canvas.
d) Adding customisation to view and animation using xml attributes and java methods.

2 . Animations using Transition Framework introduced in Kitkat-

a) Using transition framework to build basic animations between activities and fragments.
b) Creating advanced Transitions between Activities/Fragments using custom Transitions.

Outline

  1. Introduction
    What are custom views? Why use custom views?
    Overview of the Transition framework.

  2. Custom Views

    Activity transition using shared elements.

  5. Demos

    Demo 1 -
    A music visualizer using custom views.

    Demo 2 -
    A demo of Google play store style transition animation using shared elements.
