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.

Speaker bio

I have been conducting hands-on trainings in AngularJS and NodeJS for over 2 years now, and have conducted over 40 workshops for various companies across the world. And every single one of my clients loves the hands-on nature of the trainings (look at my twitter for some examples).

I have also written two books for AngularJS for O’Reilly, and the latest one is called AngularJS Up and Running. I am an Ex-Googler who was part of the original AngularJS team, and now enjoy spending my time running trainings and workshops. I have also been presenting at multiple conferences like JsFoo in the past, JSSummit, etc.
