HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a piece of technology, 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.
You can submit a proposal to speak at JSFoo via the submission funnel below. Please describe your proposal in as much detail as possible. Detail is important if you’d like to be voted up into the schedule. In particular, we want to hear why you are the best person to be delivering a talk on your proposed topic.
Your submission will be up for public voting for up to a month before the event. For the final tally, we will only consider votes from ticket holders, as a way to ensure participants get exactly what they pay for.
This event also has a Program Committee of selected individuals from the community whose votes have additional weight, and whose charge is to help you refine your proposal and prepare it for the event. The Program Committee is responsible for ensuring that the final schedule meets the high quality standards that participants expect.
Making a funnel submission does not guarantee final selection. Selected speakers will get a free ticket to both days of the event (limited to one speaker per proposal). Proposers whose talks are not on the final schedule will be able to purchase tickets at the prevailing rate for the day on which they made their proposal.

ES6 - The Bright Future of JS ( and You )
If you -
- already use any of the ES5 feature like the strict-mode, meta-programming, new methods on various prototypes like
- see yourself doing serious JS development now or in near-future
- want to learn about how one of the most popular, yet relatively uglier looking language is learning from the community & evolving to be even more awesome.
ECMA’s TC39 has been working on a new versions of JS to fix what has been warts on the language for very long.
ES5 has brought a lot of goodness in the last 2 years, but now ES6 has started landing in the major browsers & node.
Some of what TC39 has come up with, has been under heavy debate in the JS community; however most of it is really amazing and will probably shape the future of JS.
The talk should also try to cover what the speaker personally thinks are the most useful bits of ES5 & ES6.
If time permits, a mention of few other interesting proposals from harmony that might land in ES.next/ES7 would be nice.
