The 2014 Web Engines Hackfest took place in A Coruña, Spain from Sunday, December 7th to Wednesday, December 10th. Igalia has been organizing and hosting the "WebKitGTK+ Hackfest" every year since 2009, but this year we arranged a more inclusive event.
This is a hacking oriented invitation-only event.
The event involved members from all parts of the Web Platform community, including those who work on Blink, WebKit, Gecko, and Servo.
Check the list of confirmed attendees for more details.
Topics of interest include: WebKit ports, performance, graphics architecture, CSS (Grid Layout, Multi-column, Regions, etc.), multimedia, WebRTC, MathML, ES6 features (V8, JSC and SpiderMonkey), and Wayland support.
The event has an unconference format and the first step is the creation of small focused teams. Attendees should feel free to propose any topic which interests them.
This year we organized a few talks together with several breakout sessions about different web technologies.
You can find the slides and more information at the hackfest's wiki page.
This year we have people from several companies and organzations working on the Web Platform: Adobe, BrailleNet, Canon, Centricular, Collabora, GNOME, Igalia, Mozilla, Pierre and Marie Curie University, RedHat, Samsung and University of Szeged.
