We are inviting full talks (40 mins), crisp talks (15 mins + 5 mins Q&A), and 3-6 hour long (hands-on) workshops from practitioners on the overall theme of speed and performance, including the following topics:
- Architecting for performance – case studies on how you got faster response times
- Best practices: debugging and profiling on the web, measuring performance
- Handling large volumes of data in the browser
- Building and deploying web apps eg webpack, travis
- Modern web technology: Angular 2, React
- Progressive Web Apps
- JS off the web – raspberry pi, IoT
- The cutting edge: elm
Guidelines for submission
Every proposal MUST be accompanied by:
- A three minute preview video where the proposer gives an elevator pitch about the talk.
- Detailed outline of the talk – either in the form of draft slides, mind map and/or textual description.
- If you are proposing to speak on a topic where the code is not open-sourced yet, the editorial panel will consider your proposal only if the code is made open-source at least three weeks before the conference.
Without the above information, your proposal will not be considered for review.
If you are submitting a Workshop Proposal, you must clearly state:
- Background knowledge that participants must possess in order to attend your workshop.
- Details and links to software / packages which participants must install before coming to the workshop.
- Laptop configuration.
- Links to background reading material and GitHub repos.
- Duration of the workshop.
- Maximum number of participants who can attend your workshop.
- Instructor’s past experience with conducting workshops.
There is only one speaker per session. Workshops can have two or more instructors.
Entry is free for selected speakers.
Due to budgetary constraints, we prefer speakers closer to home. But if we think you stand out, we’ll provide a grant to cover part of your travel and accommodation to Bangalore. Grants are limited and are made available to speakers delivering full sessions (40 minutes or longer) only.
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 for it to be available under a permissive open source licence. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licences (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognise 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.
Deadline for submitting proposals: 29 August 2015
Conference dates: 15-16 September
JSFoo will be held at the MLR Convention Centre, J P Nagar.

# Decant - if you can't decant, distill it.
It is built on top of Rhino
Its primary purpose is to provide programming access to the notification framework of Android.
Our current usecase focus is bespoke filtering of notifications.
- The notification mechanism is the single unifying incoming datasource across all mobile platforms and applications.
- It is very under-utilised, and often times ignored as an interesting data source.
- The average mobile user has to deal with the cognitive overload from large numbers of notifications.
- There’s a sub-space of apps that help users deal with this.
- They help to organise and sort/parse through these notifications.
- This set of apps is highly fragmented and many are opaque to scrutiny or improvement.
- The framework is simple, yet powerful - via plugins.
- Plugins can be fullblown platform applications with UI - eg: enhancing information from FB/Twitter/github notifications.
- We present the most fundamental case of the notifications usecase - SMS spam in India

I am self-employed at the moment. I fund myself by writing documentation for C api’s, systems programming, and other miscellaneous work. I’m competent in C programming and computer architecture among other things.
