WebKit and Blink: Bridging the Gap Between the Kernel and the HTML5 Revolution - Juan José Sánchez Penas, Igalia

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

WebKit is a web rendering engine (HTML, JavaScript, CSS) with a generic part (WebCore, JSEngine), and 'ports' for specific platforms that implement bits like rendering, networking or multimedia. In the WebKit community, companies&individuals cooperate to evolve a complex codebase. Given the popularity of HTML5 and web tech, WebKit is a key open source project. About 10 months ago, Google announced Blink, a fork of WebKit which attracted many former WebKit contributors. Igalia's Browsers team maintains the WebKitGTK+ port and is top contributor to WebCore, JSC, V8, other ports (EFL, Clutter, Qt), and Blink. The talk will review the past/present/future of WebKit/Blink, their dynamics and development process, , the relationship with the Linux ecosystem, and will give information about how to contribute to or use both projects. Not very technical. Valid both for developers & managers.
