The Past, Present and Future of WebKit/Blink - Silvia Cho, 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 and individuals cooperate to evolve a complex codebase. Given the popularity of HTML5 and the web tech in in-vehicle infotainment systems, WebKit is a key open source project. Recently, Google announced Blink, a fork of WebKit, with consequences for the project still difficult to predict. 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.
