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.

Submitted Jan 7, 2014

The focus of the talk is to

  1. Walk you through an improvised debugging experience.
  2. To help you understand that writing a custom extention is not so tough.
  3. To appreciate the good work done by the Angular Batarang creators and take it a step further by unlocking it for all JS Scenarios.
  4. Learn how to use D3 with in a debugger extention.
  5. Learn how to use angular + bootstrap with in a developer toolbar extention.
  6. discuss how to debug debugger extention code.
  7. how to get it up there on chrome store.

Outline

I have been dreaming about creating a tool to to show JavaScript entity relationship. The side effect that I was expecting was to be able to learn and implement D3 visualization library.

Have evaluated similar thought process in the past and was very impressed by Remy Sharp’s work on jsconsole. Was about to get serious with it and just then I got involved with Angular and yes, Batarang!

Batarang has a fanstastic framework that a chrome developer toolbar can use. Batarang wraps D3, bootstrap, angular.. What else do you need.

The codebase of visual-debug is forked from and heavily influenced by the Batarang codebase and architecture.

Requirements

None
