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.

PhoneGap Hacking: Get Started, Get Awesome, Get the Future
Developers attending this session will have a clear view of what PhoneGap can do today and were its going in the future!
With more than 5 billion handsets on the planet, mobile app development is rapidly becoming the most important aspect of the web development discipline. But, mobile platforms are fragmented, distribution can be a nightmare and most developers don’t know how to port their design and development skills to mobile devices.
In this session you’ll learn how to use your development skills in conjunction with PhoneGap; how to deploy your apps on as many devices as possible; and how to get them into various app stores and directories. Find out how easy it can be to add mobile app development to your toolkit.
If you’re a web developer, mobile developer, mobile designer or a project manager in charge of mobile development, this session will help you decide whether or not the PhoneGap open source framework is right for your mobile development projects.
Brian is one of the original PhoneGap developers, and helped create, lead, and foster the open source community surrounding it. Today he works at Adobe making the mobile web a better place for developers.
