Servo is a new prototype web browser layout engine written in Rust that was launched by Mozilla in 2012 with a new architecture to achieve high parallelism on components like layout and painting. The current supported CSS properties allow Servo to be mostly operational on static sites like Wikipedia and GitHub, with a surprisingly small code footprint.

The objective of this talk is to describe its architecture in high level, source code organization and how to get started hacking and contributing to Servo. The implementation of a visual CSS feature will be explained as also considerations about Servo future roadmap.

Wait, there is more: a quick introduction on Rust programming language to be able to understand the hands-on part of the presentation.
