Contributions to an open source project: Igalia and the Chromium project
In this talk, we’ll provide a high level overview of the main upstream contributions from Igalia to the Chromium project during the past 18 months, which include improvements and implementation of new features around areas such as CSS, MathML, Accessibility and V8, large refactoring tasks to improve the code health of the project (e.g. work on the Onion Soup project and the migration from legacy IPC to the Mojo APIs), as well as leading the development of the Chromium on Wayland project, among other topics.
Finally, we’ll also present the number of Igalians contributing to the project during this period, as well as the total number of patches landed upstream, in an attempt to better visualize what made Igalia become one the top contributors to Chromium since 2019.
Software engineer and partner at Igalia with 14+ years of experience working on the development of Linux-based Operating Systems, the GNOME platform, Web engines (i.e. WebKit, Blink) and Web browsers (Epiphany, Chromium).
Currently working as a member of Igalia’s Chromium team, past experience includes work on Nokia’s Hildon Application Manager & Maemo’s APT, Litl OS, GNOME’s Epiphany browser (aka “GNOME Web”), WebKit (via WebKitGTK+ and WebKit2GTK+), Samsung’s SmartTV platform, Chromium’s Web engine (i.e. Blink) and Endless OS (core platform & desktop).
Besides tinkering with computers, I also love music, photography, travelling and outdoors sports like running, cycling or kayaking.
