WebKit is a popular open source web rendering engine (HTML, JavaScript, CSS) with a generic part (WebCore, JS Engine), and 'ports' for specific platforms which implement bits like rendering, networking or multimedia. The WebKit community is interesting: companies & individuals cooperate successfully to evolve a complex codebase. Given the popularity of HTML5 and web technologies, WebKit is one of the most important open source projects. Our WebKit team at Igalia maintains the WebKitGTK+ port and contributes to WebCore, JSC, V8 & other ports (EFL, Clutter, Qt), being the top committers after Google&Apple. In this talk, we will review the past&present&future of the project, will explain how to interact with it, how to create or maintain ports, and other details very useful for those who in one way or another use or depend on WebKit.

Not very technical.Valid both for developers & managers.
