About HasGeek

HasGeek is a developer-led, focused initiative, and has been un-organising the conference scene since 2010. 

We are attempting to build a new space, one that is genuinely respectful of the communities and topics that we choose to engage with. We want to be a space for developers who are excited about technology [new, uknown, mainstream] and the possibilities that it creates.

We are community-driven — check out our speaker-selection funnel, where you decide what talks to listen to by voting up or down. 

HasGeek reaches out to a wide audience of developers, entrepreneurs and students, across large and small Indian cities, by addressing interesting technology problems such as UI Engineering, Data Science and Developing for the Mobile Web, among others.

We are doing this because this is what we love: bringing a whole bunch of us geeks together, sharing our interests and expertise and hanging out later.
