The future of JavaScript

JSFoo is India’s premier JavaScript conference. This year is the fifth edition.

The theme for the 2015 edition is the future of JavaScript.

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

  • Santosh Rajan, founder Geekskool
  • Shwetank Dixit, Extensions Program Manager and Web Evangelist, Opera Software
  • Sindhu S, Recurse Center alumni
  • 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.

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

Test Driven Javascript - By Example

Submitted Jul 30, 2015

An advanced workshop to help people getting the real experience of writing Test Driven Code.

Outline

I had taken a beginner level workshop during the last JSFoo [https://jsfoo.in/2014/runup-bangalore] and feedback I received was to have another workshop on a much more complex codebase. And I would like to do that this time by building an application together which is not trivial.

If time permits, I would also extend it to look at different kinds of tooling for areas such as code complexity analysis, linting, coverage etc. using Grunt tasks which would help to integrate with Continuous Integration tools.

The structure of the talk will be:

  • Quick Overview of TDD
  • Build a Micropost application with TDD
  • How to “listen” to tests to avoid common pitfalls
  • Overview of tools [such as Continuous Integration for continuous feedback]
  • Q&A

More details about the structure can be found in the below Mindmap.

Requirements

  • Experience with Javascript
  • Familiarity with Git
  • Have written some tests, but yet to get into the Rhythm

Speaker bio

Leena is the Head of Engineering @ Multunus. She was bitten by the TDD bug a couple of years ago. Having done enough TDD in Ruby/Rails, Javascript and Android, she’s moved onto Continuous Delivery (CD) in a big way - even spoke about CD in multiple conferences. She had conducted workshops on TDD and CD during as part of the pevious HasGeek conferences.
