About JSFoo

JSFoo is India’s premier JavaScript conference. We launched JSFoo in 2011 as India’s first JavaScript conference. The JS community in India has grown phenomenally since. JavaScript now pervades every aspect of web development – browsers, apps, front-end, backend, mobile, and IoT.

JSFoo 2016: Theme

Over the last few years, JavaScript has evolved to become the centerpiece of a complex web stack. Today, it is a prime subject of the obsession that lies with performance and speed. How can you get pages to load faster? How do you work with browser constraints to enhance speed? How do you measure performance? What actually is performance? In what ways do faster response times influence your architecture choices and plans? How is this new focus on faster page loads and apps working offline influencing the development of front-ends and backends as well as server side JS?

The theme for the 2016 edition is tackling speed and performance for JavaScript.

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:

This year, JSFoo will feature two days of talks on JavaScript (15-16 September) and a single day of talks on design (17 September) at Meta Refresh (call for proposals will open shortly).

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 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.

Important dates:

Deadline for submitting proposals: 29 August 2015
Conference dates: 15-16 September


JSFoo will be held at the MLR Convention Centre, J P Nagar.
