FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2018.
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.
Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.
Call for proposals opens: Oct 23, 2017
Proposal submission deadline: Jan 2, 2018
Proposal acceptance: Jan 18, 2018
Presentation upload: Feb 5, 2018

A laptop. A working internet connection. This talk is primarily for front-end developers, however, whoever wants to get their feet wet with some React or Angular 2.x, this can be a gentle introduction to an inevitable piece of tooling you’ll use.
I am Shreyansh, a 19-year old backend (and sometimes frontend) developer from India currently living in Seattle, WA. I am a self-taught programmer, and owning to that, I have had the great fortune of working with startups of all sizes. While working with them, I have had to introduce myself to various concepts, most of which were really frustrating. With this talk, I aim to level down the complexity to a point where everyone understands and fully comprehends what I am talking about and, maybe, use it in their workflow.
