Theme: designing for mobile, wearables and desktop

We’re already in a world where smartphones outnumber all the desktops and laptops put together. Wearables – smart watches and devices – now act as remote controls for notifications on our phones.

A sizeable portion of your existing user base could be accessing your website only through a handheld device. While it is quite likely that future web users will never experience your site on a large screen, we also have instances where users prefer to respond to notifications on their desktop. Desktop apps are not going away either.

Meta Refresh 2016 will focus on enhancing web experience on mobile, wearables and the desktop

We’re looking forward to talks about:

We are accepting proposals under the following sections:

Criteria to submit conference proposals

You must be a practising web developer or designer, 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. 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.

Guidelines for submission

Every proposal MUST be accompanied by:

Without the above information, your proposal will not be considered for review.

If you are submitting a Workshop Proposal, you must clearly state:

There is only one speaker per session. Workshops can have more two or more instructors.

Entry is free for confirmed speakers.

If you are an outstation speaker, HasGeek will do its best to provide a grant that covers part of your travel and accommodation expenses in Bangalore, subject to budgetary constraints. Grants are made available only to speakers delivering full sessions (40 minutes or longer) and workshops.

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 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.
