Commitment to open source
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.
Tickets: To attend JSFoo 2012, you can purchase tickets from http://jsfoo-2012.doattend.com
Fanatic to Rational choices - Node.js, Vert.x and Ruby @flipkart
Rational Tech Stack choices for non-blocking, async web scale UI.
Compare and contrast node.js, vert.x, Ruby @Flipkart .
Winner was node.js at Flipkart?
Case Study of the Flipkart Technology Stack for the Supplier Experience.
Deciding the technology stack for a new product is a crucial decision and often leads to fanatical views. The decision is in essence a function of the requirements of the domain. In this talk we will walk you through the entire process of how we transformed the decision making process from fanatical to analytical, from prejudices to rational from dogma to fit-for-purpose. In this discussion we shall discuss why Node.js was appropriate for Flipkart and also under what circumstances it may not be appropriate.
In this talk we shall also study this choice with a deeper look at the production ready open source modules available for node.js .
A basic understanding of client-server architecture.
