WebKitGTK+ Hackfest 2013

I’ve just got back to Korea from WebKitGTK+ Hackfest. The fifth WebKitGTK+ Hackfest was held in A Coruña, Spain December 9-12. I attended the hackfest for the first time and really enjoyed hacking thanks to many excellent hackers from Igalia, Collabora, Samsung RedHat and CableLabs.

GNOME WebKitGTK+ hackfest

I helped enabling network process for WebKitGTK+ with Andy Wingo, Carlos Garcia Campos, Gustavo Noronha, Brian Holt, Martin Robinson, Alberto Garcia and Sergio Villar. Enabling network process was a top priority because it is a prerequisite to support  a one process per tab (multiple web process model). And we succeeded. WebKitGTK+ now supports multiple web process model with a nice bonus of network process though we still have lots of issues and bugs to fix. For more details on the work, refer to Carlos’s excellent summary: WebKitGTK+ Hackfest 2013: The Network Process.

Big thanks to Igalia and GNOME foundation for hosting this great event!
