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

Electron and Meteor are both well-known in the market for their specific uses. One for bringing the web technologies to the desktop environment and the other for making web more fun - using JS for the entire stack!!
This talk is targeting at bringing the best of both worlds and creating an awesome desktop application which is fast and makes use of the environment we use on a daily basis for something or the other. Contrary to the belief that the world is heading towards mobile - I still believe desktop is going to live for a long time. At least for enterprises - this is where bulk of our work happens! There is a reason why we have have applications like TweetDeck, Whatsapp web version and so on.
Let’s explore how we can create an application that can work as a web application as well as a desktop app - which makes use of native features so that the user can get the same experience across platforms..!
