Meta Refresh is a conference on the construction of the user experience on the web. Meta Refresh is a conference for working web designers and developers to present on how their 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.
For 2015 our focus was on (a) Design from a web engineering standpoint, and (b) Enhancing the state of web experiences on mobile devices, with their many constraints. The 2015 edition is over. Meta Refresh will be back on 13 and 14 May 2016, at the MLR Convention Centre, Bangalore.

Meta Refresh had three editions in Bangalore. Last year's edition was about the need for frontend engineers to exchange skills with designers, as well as automating frontend workflows. The emphasis was on making web engineering a two-way interaction between designers and engineers, and getting them out of their comfort zones.
The 2013 edition was about letting go. It was about learning the skills necessary to build experiences which cannot possibly exist in any medium apart from the internet. It showcased people from all over the world who have built experiences with a deep understanding of what the internet is and what it can be.
The 2012 edition was about putting the specs aside and revisit the construction of user interface on the world's biggest platform - the web. It was a single day - 4 track event which covered stories, process, browsers and tools.

All HasGeek conferences (starting 2015) offer a childcare cenlie for infants and toddlers. We understand that young children need the care of a familiar caretaker and adherence to set routines, so:
- One caretaker accompanying a child (under 6) gets free entry to the conference and all facilities.
- We offer a quiet, enclosed space for the child or caretaker to rest, and a cordoned public space with playmats. The indoor space has drinking water, a changing station (but no toilet) and a waste disposal bin.
- Both spaces include a live stream (tentative, subject to gear working), so you can attend to your child without missing sessions.
- We’ve expanded the facility’s accessible toilet to also serve as a baby changing station.
- Children are welcome inside the conference hall as long as they don't disrupt the proceedings. The play area and hall are close to each other in case you need to move quickly.
- Entry is free for children under the age of 10.
- Caretakers must bring their own diapers, toys and anything else your child requires.
- Our caterer will bring food to the daycare areas so you don’t have to step away.
- You are solely responsible for your children and must sign a waiver to this effect. There will be no staff on duty to care for your child.
- Tentative: we’ll arrange for baby-friendly food. A water heater so you can boil your own water if you don’t trust what is provided. Maybe a microwave/induction stove if it’s not too hard to arrange.
As parents of young children ourselves, we've laid out a framework based on our own experiences. We believe others like us shouldn't have to miss out on the benefits of an inclusive peer-driven learning environment. We welcome your suggestions on how we can make this better for everyone.
