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

The future of chat

Submitted Jul 25, 2015

You’ll learn how to design realtime communication applications that minimize latency and maximize user experience.

Outline

A chat application has become the “Hello World” of the realtime app space. But what are the challenges beyond that initial demo? How do we correctly handle reconnections, slow connections, prevent messages being sent out of order or being lost and so on? What are the best design patterns to apply? How do we scale it?

Requirements

Minimal JavaScript and networking knowledge.
