    • A modern, high-performance greenfield browser engine designed for both

    application and embedded use • Written in Rust • Aim to achieve parallel and concurrency computing and layout • Derived memory safety and security from Rust What is Servo? 5

    What is Servo? (Cont.) • Two successful components have been

    migrated into Firefox, e.g. Stylo and WebRender 6

    Workflow 9 Find issue Implementation Test related WPT locally Send

    / Update PR Review PR merged Run CI passed with r+ Check Failures : Sucess : Failure

    How to get involved? • Check E-* labels ◦ E

    stands for Effort here. ◦ E-easy and E-less easy are good for new contributors. ◦ E-candidate-for-mentoring means it might be an easy issue because members didn’t check it carefully. But, they will mentor you to finish the issue. ◦ E-hard means challenging tasks. 10 Ref: Tag label names and definitions

    How to get involved? (Cont.) • Check the Servo starter

    page. • Find any Web API you’re interested in and it’s missing or implemented incorrectly in Servo! 11

    WPT • In Software Engineering, writing tests to verify our

    business logic is indispensable. • So do the web platforms! • Here comes the Web Platform Tests a.k.a wpt. 17

    “The web-platform-tests project is a W3C-coordinated attempt to build a

    cross-browser test suite for the Web-platform stack.” -- web-platform-tests.org What is wpt? 18

    How to run tests with Servo CI? (Cont.) 21 CI

    tests triggered by try will report tests result when all tests passed instead of merging PR

    How to run tests with Servo CI? (Cont.) 22 But

    wait! Let’s see what @jdm said!

    Homu: The Not Rocket Science™ bors is first introduced by

    Graydon Hoare who is Rust’s original creator and mainly applied Ben Elliston’s “not rocket science” rule to the bot: 29 The Not Rocket Science Rule Of Software Engineering: automatically maintain a repository of code that always passes all the tests -- Ben Elliston
