JSFoo 2012

It’s like kung fu with JavaScript and objects! All about building full size apps in JavaScript.

About JSFoo

JSFoo is India’s only national JavaScript conference series, with editions in Bangalore, Pune and Chennai. This year’s Bangalore edition is a flagship two day event.

Event theme

The theme for this second edition in Bangalore is JavaScript everywhere. Tell us how you’re pushing the limits of what can be done with JavaScript on the server, in embedded devices, and in its original home in the browser. If you have built something that is popular (even if proprietary), tell us the story of how you did it. Got graying hair? Help us younger folk attain the zen of JS. Tell us about best practices in code and in working style, of how to organize our files and how to assemble crack JS teams.

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.

Speaking submissions

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.

Getting Started with WebRTC - A kickstart for Developers

Submitted Aug 30, 2012

The objective is to explain the basic concepts employed in the WebRTC framework and how you could contribute to its development by getting involved in the project.

The talk will give you an idea about the cool things that could be done using JavaScript once the WebRTC framework on your browser is enabled. This talk is also aimed at providing a great starting point to develop/extend applications employing the WebRTC framework.


WebRTC is a free, open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple Javascript APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose.

Imagine a world where your phone, TV and computer could all communicate on a common platform. Imagine being able to video chat from your browser without much hassle and webapps getting access to your camera and media to do wonderful things. WebRTC is here to give you that great world where you could avail all these services if you wanted to. As a Web applications developer and a Java Script lover this is something you have got to experience and learn to use.

The talk will be structurally divided into the following parts:

  1. Intro to WebRTC
  2. WebRTC Components
    • GetUserMedia(): Access Media Streams in the browser
    • PeerConnection: Audio or Video Calling
    • Datachannels: p2p communication of generic data
  3. What is being done? - Contribute to the project
  4. WebRTC - great for Developers and JS (what could be done)
  5. Demo + Conclusion - Future of WebRTC


  • A good understanding of Java Script would help.

Speaker bio

He is a CS student currently in his final year. He is an Open Source enthusiast who contributes to the Mozilla Foundation. Presently he is contributing to the WebRTC project (for Mozilla firefox - L1 Developer).

He enjoys programming and is impressed by the varied applications of Java Script especially through the WebRTC and the Websocket frameworks. He loves contributing to WebRTC and wishes to build a cool web app using it asap. (especially after he has seen and heard of what all could be done using it)
