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.

Please State Your Intent.
This talk aims to provide a hands-on introduction to Web Intents. Web intents is a framework which would enable on-demand inter web app task delegations. Its a light weight system modeled based on Android’s Intents.
By using Intents, web app developers can delegate common manipulations performed by the user to other web apps that your end user prefers, seamlessly.
There are a gazillion web apps out there. And each one of those gazillion replicates some functionality. How cool will it be if you are able to just implement a small photo uploader and let your user decided on his favourite online image editor tool ?
You solve two problems:
- You do not need to implement the code required for Photo editing, and ..
- You give the power to your user to choose the photo editor he wants to get his job done.
Web intents allow you to do just that.
In this talk we will walk through a simple web intent implementation to get started with. we will then explore the power that this framework will provide to the developer and finally we will see bottlenecks that one needs to face on a real world implementation.
