Commitment to Open Source
HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, 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.
If you are interested in conducting a hands-on session on any of the topics falling under the themes described above, please submit a proposal under the workshops section. We also need you to tell us about your past experience in teaching and/or conducting workshops.
If you are interested in doing an unconference during the breakout sessions, propose a topic which will be of interest to the community.
Deadline for submitting proposals: 31 July 2015
Conference dates: 18-19 September
Workshops: 15, 16, 17 and 20 September
An introduction to search-index.js
The talk should serve as a jumping off point for engineers looking to use search-index, and creative types who want to create new concepts around “Small Data”. The obvious benefit is knowing a technology that lets you put a search index in the browser. It opens up for some fascinating stuff.
Mats is a mathematician working with search engines at Comperio, a search consultancy in Oslo, Norway. He’s an active contributor to several open source projects, among them search-index.js and Norch.
