We are looking for talks and workshops from academics and practitioners who are at the cutting edge of developments in JavaScript.

We want to hear all about:

  • Advances in browser JavaScript
  • JavaScript in hardware
  • Functional JavaScript
  • Cutting edge developments, including original work
  • ES6

Editorial panel

  • Zainab Bawa, editorial coordinator, co-founder at HasGeek

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.

BOF sessions

If you are interested in doing an unconference during the breakout sessions, propose a topic which will be of interest to the community.

Important dates:

Deadline for submitting proposals: 31 July 2015
Conference dates: 18-19 September
Workshops: 15, 16, 17 and 20 September

Backbone And Marionette : Take Over The World

Submitted Jul 29, 2015

To showcase how my team and I at Adobe used the power of Backbone and Marionette to turbocharge our web app. I will be building a full single page application. Participants will come away having learnt powerful Backbone features and hopefully a clear understanding of building Single Page Applications.


Backbone may be one of the oldest kids on the block. I intend to show how it’s still the future of Javascript when it comes to production ready, maintainable code.

We start with how Backbone helped us out initially for the first version of our application at Adobe and why its such a great framework to use. Then we move on to how Marionette filled in the missing links and essentially turbocharged our application.

I will demonstrate features such as completely reusable components, messaging channels and plug and play views. I will also be building a full Single Page application demonstrating these.

I will also introduce you to Backbone.Radio, a feature that will be included along with the next version of Backbone. We’ll see how we can start using one of Marionette’s most powerful future additions today. We will also see a way to make it much better.

I’m also going to introduce you to one of our internal projects - the Cacheable Radio. Its an addon to the Backbone.Radio messaging channel that substantially increases the performance of Backbone Radio through browser caching. We’ll show how we use both Backbone Radio and Cacheable Radio in production and how you can too.


Basic understanding of Javascript. Thats all
