FOSSMeet 2016

FOSSMeet is an annual event at NIT Calicut that brings together the Free and Open Source Community from around the country.

FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2016.

What we are looking for

Through FOSSMeet, we intend to get the attendees, mostly students, get started with the development and usage of free software. You may propose to conduct a lecture, demo, tutorial, workshop, discussion or panel at FOSSMeet. If the contents of your session is the ‘I am feeling lucky’ result of some Google search, there is low probability that it’ll be accepted. Same applies to proposals titled ‘The absolute beginner introduction to X’ and others on a similar line. On the other hand, if your talk is on some obscure, albeit important, free software project that will go over most students head, this might not be the best platform to deliver that talk. There are always exceptions and we leave that to your judgement. If our audience wants it, we’ll try our best to accommodate it. Of course, if you find people interested in your proposal, you can always call a BoF. We are all for BoF’s! :)

Take the above with a pinch of salt. They are no s̶t̶r̶i̶c̶t̶ ̶r̶u̶l̶e̶s̶, only guidelines. All your proposals are welcome and we celebrate every single one that we receive! :D Looking forward to see you folks here.

Audience

Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.

Frontend engineering with ReactJS - Workshop

Submitted Dec 30, 2015

This workshop will focus on frontend engineering using ReactJS, the view library from Facebook. We will start of by discussing the key ideas behind React. Then we will move on to the basics of React, why we would want to use React, React API and then build a fun little webapp using react.

Outline

With this workshop, the intention is to introduce the audience to the cutting edge of technology in frontend engineering. It would appear that every day there’s a new JavaScript library coming out, but React is here to stay. So it makes sense to be knowledgeable in it. It was developed by the brilliant engineers over at Facebook with a lot of community involvement. Over the course of the workshop we will go over the following:

  • What is Frontend Engineering?
  • Why do we need React?
  • What is React?
  • Setup development Environment
  • React essential Ideas
  • React API
  • Build the App

Requirements

JavaScript Knowledge.
Unix based PC.

Speaker bio

Peter is a full stack developer @ Multunus. Having discovered React during the company’s 20% time, he’s smitten by the awesomeness that is React. He has built a production ready React Native app and has done consulting in the area. He is an ardent OSS enthusiast.
