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

TypeScript - Typed JavaScript and more

Submitted Jul 14, 2015

JavaScript is everywhere now – it’s on the front and back-end of a webapp, and many desktop text editors are powered by JavaScript. As the complexities of your JavaScript applications increases it’s important to keep your code under control before it spirals in to a mess

Outline

TypeScript lets you write JavaScript the way you really want to. TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. By introducing an optional type system, TypeScript tries to bring the benefits of statically typed languages to the dynamic world of JavaScript.

In this talk we will dicuss about,

  • Why Typscript
  • Language introduction & live coding
  • Moudules
  • Build tools & IDEs
  • Demo Application

Requirements

Basic knowledge of JavaScript
