- Sindhu S, Recurse Center alumni
- Zainab Bawa, editorial coordinator, co-founder at HasGeek
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
We will be looking at how a complete home automation system (from hardware to the user interface) can be prototyped with various JS based technologies.
- BoneScript on a BeagleBone Black to control the hardware. (A BBB, is just like a a Pi, a microcontroller board). Our little Bonescript program will control the lights/fans etc of the house, to turn them on/off. (Tivia: The BBB has a full-fledged IDE - Cloud9 which itself is written fully in JS, on which we will code)
- Nodejs to create a RESTful server on BBB that will be used to direct the on/off commands. We intend to create a simple interface that can take
http://myhome/switch/fan2?cmd=regulate&val=3type requests, and control the hardware accordingly.
- AngularJS to create a simple, good looking and easy to use front end. Ideally a responsive webpage, with various switches and knobs to control your appliances. Can be opened from your laptop/tablet/mobile.
I’ll be bringing along a BBB and some LEDs etc to represent lights of a room, and would be able to give a quick demo where I would show how to control lights from your mobile.
A laptop, with Node installed. Pretty much nothing else.
I am an Electrical and Electronics Engineering student (final year), at Delhi Technological University. I have been working mainly on Android OS hacking and tinkering with hardware projects for the past 4-5 years. I have been a contributor and device maintainer with the CyanogenMod project since 2012, and have coded a few features on the Arduino IDE 1.6.
I have given talks on Android OS-level development at Mobile Dev Summit 2014 and DroidCon India 2014.
When I am not working on Open Source projects, I am participating in Hackathons, and over last 2 years, have accumulated 6 Hackathon wins including GSF Hacks 2014, Androidation 2014 and HackIndia 2015.
