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.

Workshops

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

Pollyfill Web VR - Code easy on the Web's new Platform

Submitted Jun 15, 2015

Explore code that could possible serve as a pollyfill to web VR, until the standards for web-vr are clearly defined and stirctly followed. (that’s saying until year 2045 or something.)

Outline

Virtual Reality is the future and web is not far behind. Only problem is web standard is getting left back. So how to write code that will work with Oculus Rift, Moggles, Sony Morpheus, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR, Microsoft HoloLens, Fove VR, Carl Zeiss VR One, Avegant Glyph, Razer OSVR, Archos VR Headset, and the most famous of all - Google Cardboard. Well we’ll pollyfill ofcourse.
