Building a Browser for Automotive: Alternatives, Challenges and Recommendations - Juan José Sánchez Penas, Igalia

Automotive web browsers have specific needs, compared to other platforms such as mobile, STB/TV or desktop. When building your own web browser (or by extension your web platform middleware) many different aspects need to be taken into account in order to define the right technologies to be used, the architecture, and a good strategy regarding the collaboration with open source projects and communities. In this talk we will review all those aspects, focusing specifically in WebKit and Chromium/Blink, the two main technologies that are being used to build and derive browsers and web platforms. We will review the alternatives, describe the main challenges and risks, and give wide set of recommendations based on years of experience developing and helping companies and associations to develop this kind of projects.
