AngularJS Miniconf

A single day single track miniconf on AngularJS

With the huge growth in popularity of AngularJS, it’s time for a dedicated event looking at AngularJS in depth.

The AngularJS Miniconf is a spin-off event from Meta Refresh 2014 and will be hosted one day prior to the Meta Refresh workshops at the same venue: The Energy and Resources Institute, Domlur, Bangalore.

Miniconfs are single day, single track events on upcoming topics for a limited audience (80 max). They are participant-supported and low budget, so there’s no funding for speaker travel expenses.

We’re looking for talks on original work around AngularJS. As a spin-off event, talks will be selected by the Meta Refresh editorial panel by combining panel votes with participant votes (you may vote as a general member of the public, but your vote is only counted when you buy a ticket using an email address that is listed on your profile).
