Fragments is a two-day, single track conference on the mobile ecosystem in India. The conference will feature talks – full-length and crisp – panel discussions, and Off-The-Record (OTR) sessions.
We are looking for proposals in the following topics:
Modern Development Practices
- How are modern development teams structured?
- How do you achieve cross platform design/feature parity?
- How do your collaboration, decision making, and development processes adapt to accommodate cross platform teams?
Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery
- How is your CI/CD pipeline designed to allow you to test, build and deploy to multiple platforms (Android,iOS,Web) simultaneously?
- What tools and processes to designers follow when they have to design for multiple platforms simultaneously, given that each platform as it’s own guidelines/styles?
Localisation and Accessibility
- How do you handle localization and accessibility in modern mobile apps?
Progressive Web Apps
- Are progressive web apps the way forward?
- Are progressive web apps a better way to solve cross platform development? What’s their future?
On the ground case studies
- Talks on how companies have changed their development workflows, processes, teams, app architecture, and tooling over time.
Platform specific talks
- We are also open to platform specific technology talks that are novel in their content or approach.
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 for it to be available under a permissive open source licence. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licences (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognise 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”.
Proposals will be filtered and shortlisted by an Editorial Panel.
Make sure to add links to videos / slide decks when submitting proposals. We will not review proposals without detailed outlines or slide decks and preview videos.
The first filter for every proposal is whether the technology or solution you are referring to is open source or not. If you are referring to a proprietary technology, consider picking up a sponsored session.
The criteria for selecting proposals, in the order of importance, are:
- Key insight or takeaway: what can you share with participants that will help them in their work and in thinking about the problem?
- Structure of the talk and flow of content: a detailed outline helps us understand the focus of the talk, and the clarity of your thought process.
- Ability to communicate succinctly, and how you engage with the audience. You must submit link to a two-minute preview video explaining what your talk is about, and what is the key takeaway for the audience.
No one submits the perfect proposal in the first instance. We therefore encourage you to:
- Submit your proposal early so that we have more time to iterate if the proposal has potential.
- Talk to us on our community Slack channel: https://friends.hasgeek.com if you want to discuss an idea for your proposal, and need help / advice on how to structure it.
Our editorial team also helps potential speakers in honing their speaking skills, and rehearsing at least twice - before the main conference - to sharpen the focus of talks.
Passes and honararium for selected speakers:
A speaker is NOT confirmed a slot unless we explicitly mention so in an email or over any other medium of communication.
Selected speakers get a pass to the conference and networking dinner. We do not provide free passes for speakers’ colleagues and spouses.
We also pay an honararium of Rs. 5,000 to each speaker, at the end of their talk.
Travel grants for outstation speakers:
Fragments 2017 is funded through ticket purchases and sponsorships.
We try to provide full or partial travel grants for at least two international and two domestic speakers.
First preference in awarding grants is given to women speakers, persons of non-binary genders, and speakers from Africa. If you require a travel grant, indicate this in the field where you add your location.
Deadline for submitting proposals: 30 July, 2017
Conference date: 12-13 Sept, 2017

Lint for Life: Your Customizable Guard On the Go
The ONLY and MOST comprehensive and up to date talk on Android Lint!
Android Lint was introduced in ADT 16 as a tool to scan for potential bugs. However, Lint itself has been around since the Unix V7 in 1979 as a static analysis tool and adopted by every major programming language over the past 40 years.
Well utilized Lint not only prevents common errors such as use of deprecated elements or API calls, but also improves code quality and enforce tailored rules.
At the end of this session, audience will walk out with knowledge that reveals the full potential behind Android Lint from the built-in checks and configuration, most updated APIs, PSI Library. And step by step implementation will be shared for one customized check used by production Groupon app (also submitted to the Retrofit Library!). This talk will also cover the difference between Android Lint and other static code analysis tools such as PMD and Findbugs to help you make better decisions on which fits a certain purpose best.
Now are you ready to join us and become a Lint Expert?
Intro of Static Code Analysis
Intro of Static Code Analysis Tools in Android (with examples and usages)
Components for a Lint Rule
Step by Step Coding Example: RetrofitApiEndpointDetector.java
(With AST and Intellij PSI APIs，and unit testing in the end)
Basic knowledge of Java, Android, and static code analysis.
Snow fell in love with Android when G1 phone came onto the market and started developing Android right after her first two Java courses at University of Washington. She is part of the super star team at Groupon Silicon Valley where not only are they able to deliver a solid e-commerce app for billions of consumers around the world which has been ranked as the best Android apps for consecutive 5 years, but also technical innovations are created everyday. And she has been nominated as Mobile Rock Star multiple times. At the same time of delivering high quality features that generate billions of dollars of revenue, Snow also got to work on a stand alone home service app, and a series of internal, external libraries, major refactoring, and is always eager to share her knowledge. She is actively involved the Silicon Valley GDG, Women Who Code, Girls Who Code, and speaks both internally and externally on Android development. She is also invited to talk at Grace Hopper 2017 on open source contributions and Android animations.
