Rego’s Everyday Life

A blog about my work at Igalia.

Web Engines Hackfest 2023 is coming

Next week Igalia is hosting a new edition of the Web Engines Hackfset in A Coruña.

As last year we’ll be back at Palexco an amazing venue and we have around 100 people registered to participate onsite. You can check the full schedule of the event at the wiki page.

We hope it’s going to be a great week for everyone, and we’re looking forward to the event!

Talks #

On Monday 5th there will be five talks:

I’m really happy about the set of talks, and particularly excited about the possibility to see the presentations about some less known web rendering engines like WPE, Servo and LibWeb. BTW, the talks will be live streamed in the Web Engines Hackfest YouTube channel.

Breakout Sessions #

Apart from that we’ll have breakout sessions as usual. But this year, remote participation will be allowed on these sessions; you don’t need to register or anything like that, just join the room on the GitHub issues of each breakout session at the planned time.
