Meta Refresh 2014

On the construction of user interface on the web

Criteria for proposing sessions: You must be a practising web designer/developer, and must be able to show how your own work has advanced the state of the web in the past year. You are expected to present original work that your peers — this event’s audience — recognise as being notable enough to deserve a stage.

About Meta Refresh: Meta Refresh is a conference where Design and UI development converge. A beautiful experience on the web is a result of a deep understanding of your user and the nuances of the medium. Meta Refresh aims to be the platform where designers and UI developers exchange ideas and skills and learn from each other.

Format: This year’s edition spans four days, with two days of workshops and two days of conference. All days feature a single track.

We are accepting talks on:

  1. Front-end implementations, mainly workflow, processes, tools and automation,
  2. CSS, animation, UX, trends, and typography, and
  3. Short, crisp talks on front-end tricks.

Talks on implementation have to be about original work. While covering scalability and productivity aspects to explain implementation details, proposers must also explain who is the user and what is the context in which their product is being used. Therefore, how content and design were tailored in each specific instance.

We also invite workshop proposals on:

  1. Build systems such as Grunt
  2. CSS frameworks such as Bootstrap 3 and Foundation
  3. MVC/JS frameworks such as Angular
  4. Animations/UX

Workshops will be held on 12th and 13th February at the TERI auditorium in Domlur, Bangalore.

If you are excited about someone’s work and believe it deserves wider recognition, we recommend you contact them and ask them to submit a proposal.

Last date for submissions: 12 January 2014.
Confirmations: 15 January 2014 onwards.

There is only one speaker per session. Attendance is free for selected speakers. HasGeek will offer a grant to cover your travel to and accommodation in Bangalore from anywhere in the world for speakers delivering full sessions (30 minutes or longer). As our budget is limited, we will prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. If you are able to raise support for your trip, we will count that as a speaker travel sponsorship.

Travel grants are reimbursed at the end of the conference. You are expected to make your own travel and stay arrangements. We will assist with hotel recommendations, visa letters and general advice on travel.

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.

Non Accepted Proposals

If your proposal is accepted for a session > 30 minutes long, we will cover your event ticket. If your proposal is not accepted, you can buy a ticket at the same rate as was available on the day you proposed. We’ll send you a code.

Ember-Data

Submitted Nov 12, 2013

The talk will aim at familiarizing the audience with the problems that we face with data in case of Client Side Applications and how Ember-Data aims to solve these problems. I will talk over the core concepts of Ember-Data and then about the public apis exposed that can be used to manage data.
I will also cover some basics of Ember.js on the UI side.
Finally, I will aim at walking through a simple Web Application using Ember.js and a Nodejs server with the data being managed by Ember-Data

Outline

Single Page Applications have seen a rapid rise in the past few years and with that boom, client side frameworks have been coming up almost everyday. One such Client Side MVC Framework is Ember.js which is an open source framework that lets you create ambitious web apps.
But, even with these frameworks, we face certain issues in terms of ever changing apis and json data. Ember-Data aims to solve problems like this so that you can concentrate on doing what is important, and that is creating the Web Application without wondering or trying to figure out how the server is functioning.

Requirements

A text editor (Sublime Text preferably)
The latest version of Ember and Handlebars from http://emberjs.com/
The latest of either beta or canary build of Ember-Data from http://emberjs.com/builds

Speaker bio

I am a Software Developer with Equal Experts with over 3 years of development experiece in Web Development. I have worked with Ember for more than a year. I have presented a talk on Ember.js basics at the Expertalks meetup in Pune.
I am also a co-founder of http://udchalo.com which by the way is also built purely on Ember, so feel free to check that out as well.
